Carter Horsley's Review of The Pythian

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"One of the city's most interesting buildings, the Pythian at 135 West 70th Street between Broadway and Columbus Avenue is richly decorated in brightly colored, glazed terracotta embellishments depicting figures of antiquity. 

The mid-block building was designed by Thomas W. Lamb, one of the country's foremost designers of movie palaces, most of which, sadly, have been destroyed. One of his other works in New York is the Audubon Theater and Ballroom building on Broadway and 165th Street. " Read Carter's Full Review
