Condict Building, New York (1898) by Louis H. Sullivan Photos

The Baynard Building, later the Condict Building (1897-8) (65-69 Bleeker St. off Broadway) was designed by Louis H. Sullivan, one of the inventors of the Chicago-style of architecture and is the only building by this innovator in New York City. It is decorated by a series of distinctive angels across the top and Sullivan's signature interlaced Celtic scrolls over the facade. Its importance was as a prototype for how skyscrapers were to evolve.
