Day 386

Frank & Camille’s

January 19th, 2013



This piano showroom is a rare surviving piece of the old Lalance & Grosjean factory. According to the AIA Guide to New York City:

"Until most of the antique, red-painted brick structures were wasted in the mid 1980s to form yet another shopping center, this intricate array of 19th-century mill buildings was a remarkable relic of the era when the Village of Woodhaven claimed a nationally known tinware and agateware manufacture. Its products graced many an American kitchen for generations, and the Lalance & Grosjean factory employed hundreds."

    Gone where all the pianos are going, run out of town by electronic keyboards.
