1909, Oliver O. Smith. 1927, Keffer and Jones. North side of Grand Concourse, at 32nd St.

A Roman amphitheater has been translated in new materials—a thin fabric of steel and concrete—and then sheathed in brick with limestone trim. There are metal factory sash windows, and accompanying metal spandrels between each of the arches. A grand eagle in high relief is situated above the principal entrance.
