Arlington Hall

ARLINGTON HALL • 79-01 35th Avenue

Built in 1939, architect was Joshua Tabatchnik, the six-story-and-basement Arlington Hall coop is among the later apartment buildings erected in the Historic District of Jackson Heights. Typical of that phase of development, the building occupies a site on 35th Avenue and is planned with a shallow recess at the avenue façade containing the entrance and a deep lightcourt at the side facing 79th Street.

Designed in the neo-Georgian style, brick building features exhibit double-height temple front motifs at the upper stories, culminating in pediments with blind oculi at die roofline; brick laid to suggest quoins; brick dentil courses; broken pediments at first-story windows; and a window above the entrance with a Palladian motif. The original entrance has been replaced. Balconies have been removed from sixth-story windows (the brackets remain).  –
