1. Rodin Studios Marker
Inscription.  By the start of the 20th Century, West 57th Street had become a major cultural center. The French Renaissance-style Rodin Studios were built in 1916-17 to provide studios and residences for professional artists. Designed by Cass Gilbert, architect of the Woolworth Building, the principal elevations are embellished with late Gothic and Neo-classical motifs executed in rough buff-colored brick and molded terra cotta. Cast iron canopies, inspired by medieval choir stalls, project for between the bays of double-height windows. The building, named to honor the French sculptor Auguste Rodin, was converted to commercial use in 1968.
