When you enter the armory from the Fort Washington Avenue side, you’ll notice distinctive tiled vaults. They are not by the famous tile master, Guastavino, but the Fort Washington Avenue Armory still has a distinguished architectural pedigree. It’s designed by Richard Walker and Charles Morris, who also designed the Battery-Maritime Building, where the Governors Island Ferry leaves from.
