Another Remnant

I was in Brooklyn the other day and happened across this: a quite nice terra cotta facade on a building with the Studebaker name in the parapet. The windows of the first three floors and the facade at those floors within the project piers is a little odd, but overall a very good buiding.

It turns out that the odd portion of the facade used to be big windows for the car showroom, and that the building used to have a very large illuminated sign on the roof.

Exposure to mediocre horror movies has me picturing the tenants – the building is now an apartment house – being chased around their homes by the ghosts of old cars.
