I can see those comparisons as well. I think the Adelphi comes to mind first because I have seen it more times.

What it should remind you of is the Morse/Co-Ed – the facades are extremely similar. Also, note that the terra cotta over the entrance of the Morse is a virtually identical design to that at the Village North. Also similar are the Bertha, Broadway and Village North designs. Grossman and Proskauer seem to have had something of a template.

Never picked up on this location before. That is a nice building. Kind of reminds me of the Adelphi on N. Clark St.

I can’t believe the bar occupies space going all the way to the rear auditorium wall. I wonder what else is back there? Just storage space I suppose.

I’m told the bar that currently occupies the space has a great genuine deco interior.
