From the outside, this is just a nondescript, bland, low-rent block of Manhattan.
But underneath it’s a story.
It’s the story of an architect who, in his early twenties, built the most innovative, and beautiful, apartment in the city.
We’re talking about Alexander V. Krueger, and he was also a brilliant architect who made a lot of great mistakes.
But when you get right down to it, Kruegers building of a five-story apartment building in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Crown Heights in the 1920s was nothing short of astounding.
The building, Kruesger’s most famous project, was the first building to have a “novelity” (a term coined by architectural historian George Pomerantz) added to the design in a way that made it unique from any other building in New York City.
The novelity meant that, if you were to look at the building today, you’d see it as a kind of new kind of architecture: one that’s designed with the goal of preserving the natural beauty of the landscape while also being able to create a modern, contemporary living space.
The story of Kruegs building is actually quite simple.
It began when Kruegger, a young architect, started working on a residential project in Brooklyn.
He wanted to use the buildings natural light to create an aesthetic that would appeal to his neighbors and keep them from having to look out of the window to see what was happening outside.
He also wanted the apartments to have low rents and to have easy access to public transportation.
This meant that the buildings were to be small, so that tenants could walk around and get their work done while still maintaining a comfortable, cosy space for their families.
Kruesgers vision for the apartments was that the apartments would be the ideal place to live, but also the place to do business.
He believed that the city’s business culture, with its focus on profit-maximizing business operations, would make the apartments a natural fit for the modern city.
His building in Crown Heights was a massive success, becoming one of the largest commercial buildings in the country.
Krusgs success made him a wealthy man, but Kruegers vision for his apartments was not to simply create more apartments, but to build them with an eye toward preserving their natural beauty and creating a modern living space that would attract people who are interested in working in a modern way.
He called his project “Vikings architecture,” after the Vikings of the North Atlantic who fought and conquered other European nations.
Krutch, the architect, had already been building apartments in Brooklyn for a while, and by 1922, he was already designing and building the first two buildings in Crown Hills.
One of these buildings was a residential building that would be called “Krueger,” and the other, a large commercial building called “Viking.”
Krutch designed the first three apartments as if they were going to be a kind, small apartment building that was designed for two people to live together.
Kruths first concept for the apartment building, the “Vinland,” was designed as a two-bedroom apartment, complete with a kitchen, a bathroom, and a walk-in closet.
He envisioned the building as a sort of mini-hotel, with a large indoor courtyard for meeting spaces, and also a rooftop terrace that could accommodate the dining area, an outdoor dining area for meeting rooms, and another outdoor dining room.
He intended to have these spaces all within a short distance of each other.
The Vinland would have an outdoor patio that would serve as a large outdoor balcony.
Krutches first apartment, “Krutch,” was the tallest building in Brooklyn, and the tallest apartment in New England.
It was built in 1922, and it was the last building built in Crown Hill.
Krutt’s work was so popular that it was considered to be the city building of the century, with the city planning department awarding Krutch the largest architectural prize ever, the Empire Builder of the Year Award, in 1923.
Kruzich and his family lived in the Vinland for many years.
The apartment was a kind o’ house, Kruth’s son George said.
The family didn’t have much to do on the day they were supposed to move into the Vinlands apartment, so they went outside to see how the apartment looked.
The neighbors were quite pleased with the building, and were glad to have some peace and quiet.
When they got home, they went over and looked around the apartment.
They didn’t know what they were looking at.
They thought they were in a building that had been completely remodeled and was now totally complete.
The house was actually very much like a normal, modern home, and there were no problems whatsoever with the apartment, George said, describing how the Vineland looked.
One room was a little bit different than the rest of the apartment room, and they were surprised
