Place Matters Profile

Built in 1929 by a charitable, reform-oriented organization to provide a safe, sober sanctuary for seamen (and women), this property is equally valued for it social and architectural history. The vertical massing references other works by the architectural firm of Shreve, Lamb and Harmon, and a range of nautical images--in terra cotta and cast stone--ornament the building, including ships, anchors and ship's wheels.
