The Most Beautiful Building In Queens, July 19, 2015. The Nobility of the Steinway Mansion Amidst the Wasteland of Warehouse Construction.

Site of the Caliendo-designed warehouses.

Gerald Caliendo, Architect and President of the Board of Directors of the King Manor Museum Association . . .
. . .  and Queens warehouse designer.

A feather in his cap?

The grand entrance through the Mansion gate and view of the Great Lawn -  what countless historical persons viewed as they visited the Steinway family in the late 19th century - what's left of it.

The Valley of the Caliendo Warehouses.

The most beautiful building in Queens.  Built during the Presidency of James Buchanan 3 years (1858) before the start of the American Civil War.
