Designated March 3, 1992 

Constructed in 1934 for restaurateur Frederick William Irving Lundy, in conjunction with the government-sponsored redevelopment of the Sheepshead Bay waterfront in the mid-1930s, Lundy’s was thought to be one of the largest restaurants in the country when it was completed and remains among the largest restaurant buildings in Brooklyn. The Lundy Brothers Restaurant Building was designed by the prominent firm of Bloch & Hesse which specialized in restaurant design. A fine example of the Spanish Colonial Revival style, its design features sand-colored stuccoed walls, low sloping red Mission tile roofs, arched entrances, arcuated corbel tables, decorative ironwork, and leaded glass windows.

“I don’t know what the City would be without HDC. [They] testified before LPC time after time and helped us focus on the right issues. We would not be an historic district without HDC! ”

“Use HDC as a resource because they know what they are doing and can offer advice on how to go about creating a district from every front: architectural, political, LPC, and the media. I had floundered prior to my involvement with this invaluable organization.”

“HDC provided guidance and shared information during that process—we knew which Council members were going one way or another and we changed a few minds. I don’t think NoHo would have had as cohesive a district had it not been for HDC’s aid.”

“I remember Richard saying at a meeting, we have someone here from HDC, Nadezhda Williams, Director of Preservation and Research, to help us. She said to us, ‘You are not the only ones going through this.’ HDC included us in an enormous community”
