4. 1150 Grand Concourse

It is better known as the Fish Building, for obvious reasons. But, why the fish mosaic? Who knows, but why not? This Art Moderne, Depression-era building brightens up the block.

The mosaic, whose creator is unknown, helps make this building “one of the most astonishing apartment houses in the Bronx, indeed in New York City,” according to architecture critic Christopher Gray.  A visit to this work of art can be combined with a trip to the Bronx Museum of the Arts, located two blocks to the south.

  1. Having been born and raised in Brooklyn, the Bronx always seemed like a distant country. So sad to say I’ve only ventured into the Bronx a few times during my long life. To the zoo of course, and to the NYBG Train Show last year. Thanks for this wonderful look at the doorways in the Bronx.
