The Gerard
The Gerard
Midtown Manhattan, New York City, New York, United States The Gerard, an exceptionally fine brick, limestone, and terra-cotta apartment hotel, designed in 1893 by George Keister, marks a transition in both American architectural taste and in the developmental history of the west Midtown area. Stylistically, it displays an unusual combination of Romanesque and Northern Gothic and Renaissance details found on very few other buildings in America. When it was erected, this apartment hotel was one of the tallest buildings in a predominantly low-rise residential area and it heralded the enormous change that the neighborhood was to undergo a few years later as it became the heart of New York City's theater district. The Gerard was commissioned by the developers Alexander Moore and William Rankin who employed George Keister to design the new structure. Keister is a little-known architect who was active in New York City from the late 1880s through the first decades of the twentieth century. Although few buildings by Keister have been identified, those that are known form an interesting group, and examination of his work reveals Keister as one of the more innovative and interesting architects of the period. Among Keister's major works are the eccentrically-massed Romanesque Revival style First Baptist Church (1891) on the northwest corner of Broadway and West 79th Street and a group of ten rowhouses on East 136th Street in the Bronx, known as the Bertine Block (1891). These rowhouses bear a close stylistic resemblance to the Gerard. During the twentieth century Keister seems to have specialized in the design of theaters. These include the German-Renaissance style Astor Theatre (1906, demolished) on Broadway and West 45th Street, the neo-Classical style Selwyn at 229 West 42nd Street (1918), the Belasco Theatre (originally David Belasco's Stuyvesant Theatre, 1906-07), a Colonial Revival style building with elegant interior spaces, located next to the Gerard, and the Apollo (1912-13), one of Harlem's great cultural monuments. The 1893 design of the Gerard coincided with the opening of the Worlds Columbian Exposition in Chicago. This world's fair firmly established Classical and Renaissance architectural sources as the preeminent design force in American architecture, hastening what had been a slow transition from the massive, earth-toned, picturesque forms of the Romanesque Revival to a lighter, more symmetrical type of architecture. The Gerard is a building that firmly marks this transition in architectural taste. A major portion of the softly modulated facade is designed in a late Romanesque Revival manner. The Gerard's tawny brown brick facing is punctuated with Gothic and Renaissance details; the Gothic and Renaissance forms chosen by Keister are not inspired by the Italian and French sources popular with his contemporaries, but are based on German precedents. The Picturesque juxtaposition of Romanesque forms with German Gothic and Renaissance details is typical of German architecture. In the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries the Renaissance dominated Italian architecture, but in Northern Europe, which did not have a strong classical tradition, the Renaissance never totally displaced medieval ideas and it is common to find a basically medieval building with Renaissance surface ornament. In Germany the Renaissance was less refined and more picturesque than in France and Italy. Keister's application of Renaissance details to a "medieval" structure shows a thorough understanding of the architecture of the Northern Renaissance. The most striking German motif on the Gerard is the pair of steep, sloping roof gables. This is a medieval German from particularly popular during the fifteenth century. Between these gables Keister has placed German Renaissance style dormers. These tall narrow features with their Ionic columns and rounded pediments, bristle with urns and they perfectly complement the gables. The use of German forms was extremely rare in New York City outside of buildings designed specifically for the use of the German community such as the Ottendorfer Library and the German Dispensary (now the Stuyvesant Polyclinic) on Second Avenue near St. Mark's Place and Scheffel Hall (now Tuesday's Restaurant) at 190 Third Avenue. Besides Keister, the only architect in New York City to Regularly use German-derived details was Henry Hardenbergh, such masterpieces as the Dakota Apartments at 1 West 72nd Street and the rowhouses at 13-67 West 73rd Street display German detailing. Keister's choice of this rather unusual design vocabulary accords with his architectural philosophy. In an article published in the inaugural issue of Architectural Record in 1891 Keister noted his belief that good architecture need not be confined to a single style, writing that in a good design "different styles are not so distinctly separated that a composition may not have the characteristics of two or more st

Day 1: 1st June 09
Day 1 - Monday 1st June. Time for another “Wave bye bye to 100 things in 10 days” exercise. I have already given a load of things away on Freecycle this past fortnight, but there are still loads of things lying around cluttering the place up. The house looks like a jumble sale at the moment, there’s stuff everywhere! We need to decorate 2 bedrooms so I have decided to be ruthless. We’d also like to move house in the next couple of years and I don’t see the point of packing up all our clutter and paying to have it moved to a new house, where it will more than likely be stashed away again or thrown out! From left to right: Scrapbook papers: I got rid of some drawer units on Freecycle yesterday so I’ve had to rearrange my craft bits and thin them out a bit. I had far too many scrapbook papers, so I’ve got a big pile to give away on Freecycle. Steam steriliser. My daughter bought this last year for the baby’s bottles but used it once and didn’t like it. As she didn’t have a receipt the shop wouldn’t take it back so I’ve been given it to dispose of. Put it on Freecycle and someone is coming this morning. Metal file box. This has been in our loft for a couple of years gathering dust. I put this on Freecycle too and someone is coming today for it. Wooden magazine holder from Ikea. I bought loads of these when I collected craft magazines. Now they all seem to be the same and repeating ideas I’ve given up buying them and got rid of a load last year, so I have a few of these hanging around. They are going on Freecycle. Rusty old baking tin. I found this lurking in the garage, so I will put it in with the metal recycling this week. French dictionary. I bought this in Oxfam a couple of years ago with the idea that I would use it in my crafting, as backing papers etc., but I haven’t used it so far, so I will donate it back to Oxfam. Reel of transparent Scotch tape and holder. Bought this to use in my crafting but I’ve got loads of other reels of it so I am very generously donating this to my charity’s tombola next weekend as a prize. Tin of Altoids mints. Bought these in the US last October, thought I could maybe alter the tin after I’d eaten the mints, but I’ve still got them unopened. These will also be a tombola prize at the weekend. Various rolls of wrapping paper. Or should I say, half rolls of wrapping paper! I bought these and cut them in half as they were easier to store. I now need the storage space more than I need the papers. I reckon if I haven’t used them in 4 years I’m not likely to in the next 4! These are going on Freecycle to find a home with another crafter out there somewhere. A mannequin thing that I bought in a craft shop sale for ?1 at least 4 years ago. I was going to paint it and cover it with tissue paper in a sort of collage, but this is as far as I got and it’s been like that ever since. I figure I can live without it now. It will be offered on Freecycle with some other craft bits I am going to sort out.
