Audubon Park Historic District
The Velasquez (611 West 156th Street): Lobby
Marble walls, a coffered ceiling, and a beautifully preserved tile floor reflect the elegance original tenants would have seen in the Velazquez's long lobby. Beyond the double doors is a short flight of stairs leading to an entry (featurning the niche above left); a set of double doors leads to the street.
Thanks to Gloria Patane for assistance with the photographs!
At the rear of the lobby is a staircase that supplements the elevator.
