About the model
A new model from my Soho, Noho and Nolita series. This is quite a heavy model with about 6216 tris and a 2048×512 texture. Normal mapped, illuminationmap and specularmapped. It’s a triple corner building, so quite a bit work and that might also explain to you why the amount of tris quite high.
LoD is around 232 tris, 512×128.

About the building
Its handsome brownstone facade, Queen Anne mansard roof, and many decorated chimneys looked out of place in an area of mostly tenements and low-rise lofts.
The building came off like a visitor from another New York. And in a way, it was.
It was constructed way back in 1848 as the New York headquarters of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, a fraternal organization that aided the poor.
Designed by Trench and Snook, the architects behind retail king A.T. Stewart’s Marble Palace at Broadway and Chambers Street and many of New York’s cast iron edifices, this “Corinthian pilastered palace,” as the AIA Guide to New York City described it, originally had just four stories and a domed roof.
Still, it was celebrated for its beauty and uniqueness. At a dedication of the building in 1849, a large procession marched down Broadway, blocking all omnibus traffic, until it reached Grand Street amid cheering and music, according to The Evening Post on June 5.
oddfellowshall1975mcnyInside was just as lovely, according to Miller’s New York as It Is, from 1866. “It contains a series of highly ornamented lodge-rooms, richly furnished and in different styles of architecture,” the guide noted.
Odd Fellows’ Hall only served as the organization’s home base in Manhattan until the 1880s.
The group moved uptown, and an extensive renovation—two more stories, the mansard roof—was done to make it more appealing to new commercial and industrial tenants.
