Aymar Embury II Gallery of NYC New Deal Projects - Photo #20 - Orchard Beach - Bronx

The South wing of the Orchard Beach Bathhouse. Before the bathhouse was closed in 2007, the alcoves on the bottom contained concessions such as snack bars, as you can see in the next image. The discoloration is due to a reaction between the cheap concrete used in the construction (since the objective was to employ the largest possible number of workers) and the salt spray coming off Pelham Bay.
