Recently our friends at Art Deco Architecture posted this stunning image of the Niagara Mohawk Building which is located in my hometown, Syracuse, NY. I used to pass this building everyday on my way to work at another, although less impressive, Art Deco structure the State Tower Building.

As soon as the snow melts (if it ever does), I’ll get out and take more photos of this Art Deco masterwork to add to Design and Desire. And to our friends at Art Deco Architecture, if you do get the opportunity to visit Syracuse, NY, please don’t hesitate to look me up!
