This is part of the front wall of a cool, colorful tiled building on U.S. 1 near Princeton. We've driven past it many times and I've always thought it would make a great photography project. So yesterday I finally drove over there and spent some time wandering around the outside. I've got a set of photos here.
The building seems to be in pretty bad shape -- I'm not sure renovation or restoration is possible. (It may be full of asbestos, too, given the era.) It's just another one of many common commercial structures that were built in the mid-century and then abandoned and disrespected. A shame!
I wonder if the architect/designer intended to emulate Mondrian?
