Washington Plaza Apartments

Washington Plaza Apartments

This is our only major building by the modernist icon I. M. Pei, and it was one of his earlier works. Though this picture was taken in May of 2000 (with an Argus A camera), the building had not changed much since it was put up in 1964. Since 2000 it has acquired a new name, City View Apartments, and a coat of brownish-grey paint (we have a more recent picture of the building here).

St. Francis Central Hospital, at the right of the picture, has been replaced by a hotel.
