Wow. That looks amazing, thanks for sharing. I've always loved Art Deco- it would be wonderful if a revivalist movement became popular.

That article links to a video that shows the process of creating the terra cotta, pretty cool: https://ny.curbed.com/2017/12/15/16780320/chelsea-fitzroy-facade-video-terra-cotta

^ iíll get some pics of it to post ó i want to see the terra cotta up close.

yes a neo-deco revival would be nice to see more of as long as its done well and not so kitsch like it was in the miami vice era 1980s.


edit: it looks like the same hudson valley company is doing the terra cotta for the grand central one vanderbilt tower facade as well:
