The Top 100 Greatest NYC Buildings — #49

Park Plaza Apartments

This polychromatic marvel was one of the first Art Deco developments in the Bronx, a borough which would later become famous for that style. Some of the décor features Mayan motifs which were popular at the time. With over 200 apartments, this is arguably the Bronx’s most beautiful residential building and became a New York City Landmark in 1979.
