Scarano Comes to East Village, Pukes

New, 24 comments

While the East Village's legendary Russian & Turkish Baths on 10th Street was getting a much-needed face lift, the tiny apartment building next door was also going through some reconstructive work. And what a curious little four-floor addition it is. The comically oversize balconies, on a quiet block dotted with old-fashioned fire escapes, look more appropriate for papal sermons or stagings of Evita (and that color!). All questions have been answered, however, in the project's turning up on the website of everyone's favorite Brooklyn debaser, architect Robert Scarano. Scarano doesn't get over to this side of the river often, but one thing's for sure: He certainly dropped the S on the East Village.
