Among its important qualities, the Wheatsworth Bakery Building was constructed in 1927-28 to the designs of J. Edwin Hopkins, a specialist in the design of industrial bakeries. The building is a rare example of an Art Deco/Viennese Secessionist style factory building in New York City. The building’s linear ornamentation of the terracotta friezes with restrained, geometric designs is characteristic of this style of architecture. Its brick façade and large multi-pane steel windows are typical features of factory buildings of the era, but that its decorative terra cotta distinguishes this building from typical factory buildings of the 1920s.

“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”
