This week, a few workers were on site at 42-10 Vernon Boulevard, the 1892 building that served as the office for New York Architectural Terra-Cotta Works and is now an abandoned landmark. The DOB issued permits for general remedial repairs earlier this year, although the historically decrepit building needs more TLC than that. A few years ago, Silvercup Studios planned to build a studio on the lot behind the building and restore the Vernon Boulevard landmark. Plans stalled after the economic downturn.

Built in 1892 as an office for the company that supplied terra-cotta for Carnegie Hall and the Ansonia Hotel, among others. The company went out of business in the 1930s, and the building became vacant. It was eventually bought in 1965 by Citibank. Its ruins can be found at 42-10 – 42-16 Vernon Avenue, across the street from the sumptuous hedonism of the newly opened Ravel Hotel, and next door to the venerable and recently feted span of the centuried Queensboro Bridge.
