Studebaker buildings in New York

Above once had a 2 story glass windowed showroom. It was designed in 1920, but was past its glory days in 1929 when the stockmarket imploded and they started selling used cars here. Now it's a low rent apartment building. http://www.brownstoner.com/brownstoner/archives/2009/04/walkabout_with_1.php?gallery1416Pic=2#gallery-1416 for an interesting historical perspective of it and the "Automobile Row" of New York

The above was an automobile finishing building for Studebaker during the 1920's. The same stock market crash killed it too. http://www.cuf.columbia.edu/workinginstudebaker/docs/Studebaker/history.html
