I was recently hired by Newmark,Grubb,Knight, Frank to Photograph The Bell Headquarters Building in Newark, NJ.
The building was built in 1929 by the New Jersey Bell Telephone Company.
The Art Deco building was designed by Ralph Thomas Walker of the architectural firm Voorhees, Gmelin, and Walker.
The brick and sandstone facade is decorated with pilasters created by scultpter Edward McCartan.
The Building is 20 stories and 275 feet high. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places on September 21, 2005
Marble and Granite with a Geometric Relief Ceiling.
These doors are amazing along with the Torch Lighting
Looking toward the Marble Relief
From this board room the executives of Bell issued every area code in the Nation, with 201 being the first area code in the country.
The Elevators are elaborate with elegant pierced brass fretwork.
