6. The Fish Building

The Fish Building, located at 1150 Grand Concourse, acquired its nickname decades ago as a result of the aquatic murals on its facade. The building was designed by Horace Ginsbern, who designed other Pre-War gems in the Bronx, in the Art Deco style and was constructed in 1937. Even more impressive than its facade, is its lobby. The lobby contains a red, green, and gold terrazzo floor, two murals by Rene and CP Graves, stained glass windows, and even beautifully ornamented walls and elevator doors.
