The Recently Departed
Also known as the Waterside No. 2 Power Station, the building was a visual anchor for the East River waterfront and First Avenue for nearly a century. Constructed by the New York Edison Company in 1906, the building was located next to the water so that coal could be delivered by barge to power the station. Despite its utilitarian purpose, the building was designed by in-house architect Thomas Murray in a Renaissance Revival style consisting of an ornamented stone base with large arches, red brick and a metal mansard roof. It was demolished in January 2006.
