Rochester Fire Department Headquarters
Rochester, NY
The Rochester Fire Department Headquarters was built in 1936. The Headquarters building still serves as a firehouse. The repair shop building across the street (bottom row above) was also built in 1936. I believe it is still used by the fire department as well. [map]

This Sears, Roebuck & Co. department store was probably built in the late 1920s or early 1930s. [map]

Times Square Building
Rochester, NY
This Times Square Building was built from 1929-1930. It was originally the headquarters of the Genesee Valley Trust Company. The aluminum "Wings of Progress" on the top of the building are 42 feet tall. [map]

Niagara Mohawk Power Company
Syracuse, NY
The six-story Niagara Mohawk Power Company was built in 1932. Its stainless steel accents shimmer during daylight hours. At night, there is dramatic lighting which includes floodlights pointed at the sky. The exterior's central decorative sculpture, "Spirit of Light", is a 28' tall stainless steel male figure with bolts of light projecting upward from his hands. For more photos, see this website.

former New York Central Railroad
Syracuse, NY

The New York Central Railroad was built in 1936 and was later used as a Greyhound bus station. Greyhound left the building in 1988 and it remained vacant after that. In 2002, the station was restored and converted into office and studio space for Time Warner. Nothing remains of the original interior. [map]
