Artwork: Historic New York City Architectural Elements (Brooklyn Museum of Art Collections)

From nycsubway.org

Location: Eastern Parkway-Brooklyn Museum

These architectural elements offer a sampling of ornamental forms that once decorated and still adorn many 19th- and early 20th-century buildings in New York City. The molded terra cotta keystones, plaques, lunettes, and borders on view have been salvaged from now-demolished structures throughout the metropolitan area. They were drawn from the Brooklyn Museum of Art's collection, where they have long served to increase public awareness and appreciation of Greater New York's architectural richness.
