Welcome! Dedicated to all things Art Deco.

We are located in Rochester, New York. Join us on our journeys across North America searching for Art Deco. Kicking off the site, here are two notable local Art Deco buildings. Detail of “The Wings of Progress”, on top the Genesee Valley Building (now the Times Square Building) at the corner of Broad Street and Exchange Boulevard. Completed in 1930 and briefly the tallest building in the city.
