F. W. I. L. Lundy Brothers Restaurant Building
Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, New York City, New York, United States
The F.W.I.L. Lundy Brothers Restaurant Building is the last of the great seafood palaces which once flourished in Sheepshead Bay, a shorefront community known for its fishing fleet and famous eating places. 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.
Known for its excellent seafood, Lundy's became a major Brooklyn institution which served as many as a million meals a year and is remembered fondly by tens-of-thousands of New Yorkers. 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. Associated with the architecture of California and the Southwest and frequently used for resort architecture, this style was relatively rare in the New York area.
The F.W.I.L. Lundy Brothers Restaurant Building was a rare manifestation of the style in a restaurant building and appears to be the sole survivor of the style among pre-World War II restaurant buildings in New York.
The Development of Sheepshead Bay
Generally thought to have been named after a black-banded fish which flourished in local waters, the south Brooklyn waterside community of Sheepshead Bay was first settled by British colonists as an outgrowth of the seventeenth-century town of Gravesend.
It remained a small fishing village throughout the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, but in the 1840s Brooklyn and Manhattan residents began to discover that Sheepshead Bay was "just the place to spend a hot summer-day, ... or to satisfy a craving appetite with a clam-chowder, or a regular fish-dinner."
The abundant wildlife in the bay also attracted sports fishermen and duck hunters. A number of hotels, boarding houses, and restaurants were built to serve the visitors. In the 1870s Sheepshead Bay was linked to downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn by the opening of Ocean Avenue (1876) and the New York & Manhattan Beach Railroad (1877-78), both of which terminated across the bay in Manhattan Beach where railroad developer Austin Corbin erected two magnificent resort hotels.
In 1877, the first of several farms in Sheepshead Bay was subdivided into house lots. Three years later, Leonard Jerome, reasoning that a racecourse in the vicinity of Coney Island would be a success, persuaded a group of investors to form the Coney Island Jockey Club.
A large tract of land, extending from Avenue W to Jerome Avenue (later incorporated into Avenue Z) between East 23rd Street and Nostrand Avenue, was purchased for a racetrack and grandstand; a clubhouse was erected in Manhattan Beach which was even then accessible to Sheepshead Bay via a foot bridge at Ocean Avenue. The club sponsored a number of prestigious races including the "Suburban" and the "Futurity" and the track soon attracted thousands of visitors during the fall and spring racing seasons.
Sheepshead Bay quickly grew into a major resort. William C. Whitney, one of the leading figures in American racing, built a training track and racing establishment nearby. Lincoln Beach, a development of summer homes on Emmons Avenue east of 27th Street, became known as "Millionaires' Row."
A number of well-known restaurants developed, including Tappan's, on Emmons Avenue at East 26th Street (burned 1950), which was patronized by such socialites as
Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt, Clarence Mackey, and Harry K. Thaw, and Villipigue's, the originator of the "Shore Dinner," at Voorhies and Ocean Avenue (demolished c. 1948), which attracted a sporting crowd that included Lillie Langtry, Diamond Jim Brady, Bet-a-million Gates, and Maurice Barrymore.
Other restaurants and inns sprang up near the racetrack or along Emmons Avenue. In 1910 Governor Charles Evans Hughes responded to betting irregularities by imposing a state-wide ban on horse racing. Although the Sheepshead Bay track reopened in 1915 as an auto course and was the site of some important early races, the first period of development in Sheepshead Bay was essentially over.
In the 1920s, the availability of large tracts of land, notably the former racetrack which was subdivided into house lots in 1922, improved transportation facilities, and a favorable tax policy for new housing brought an influx of year-round residents to the Sheepshead Bay area. Efforts were also made to develop the community's maritime-related industries.
As early as 1916, the Sheepshead Bay
Last weekend I was with some friends. Four couples Canadian/Tibetan along with their kids, in an ancestors house. In the office, an old earthglobe, where Tibet was still an independant country. Stange coincidence isn't?
En fin de semaine derniere j'etais avec des amis. Quatre couples Quebeco-Tibetain, avec leurs enfants. Nous etions dans la maison ancestrale de l'un d'eux. Dans le bureau se trouvait un vieux globe terrestre, affichant encore le Tibet comme un pays independant. Belle coincidence n'est-ce pas?
free country decorating magazines
The third volume in the enticing new series of home decorating books based on Mary Engelbreit's successful Home Companion magazine. Collections offers creative ideas and simple guidelines for Mary fans who wish to achieve a unique and beautiful look in their homes using their favorite collectible items.
From popular artist Mary Engelbreit (whose work graces greeting cards, calendars, books, and home decorations, among others) comes a beautiful little book about collecting. "No matter what drives us," she says, "few are immune to the urge to collect." Engelbreit establishes the beginning of a collection at three pieces--and you've usually purchased the adorable, unique items before even realizing you've started a collection. But how do you know what to collect and, once you've gotten an impressive little pile, how do you arrange them?
In Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion: Collections, Engelbreit explains how to recognize collectibles, where to find them, and then what to do with them once you get home. She reminds us that "popularity is a factor; collectibles go in and out of vogue and their prices skyrocket accordingly." So if you started buying stray pieces of Bakelite or old medicine bottles a few years ago, you may have amassed a valuable assortment. Engelbreit advises buying what you "REALLY like," not just items you think may increase in price--after all, you have to live with this stuff.
The book covers some of the more sought-after collectibles: clocks, books, pottery, stuffed animals, souvenirs, maritime items, toys, and paper/labels. In each section are sumptuous photographs of how to creatively display your treasures in your home. The arrangements are lovely, but not overly ornate, inspiring those of us without interior decorators to try a hand at it ourselves. Whether you collect teddy bear cookie jars or jeweled hat pins, Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion: Collections not only encourages the collecting bug, but also ensures your collection doesn't end up in a box under the bed. --Dana Van Nest
