My Commentary:
The first floor entry is reached by a series of concrete steps. On the right is a glass and metal door entry covered by a simple metal canopy. On the left is a central large double-hung window flanked on each side by narrower matching double-hung windows. The sills and lintels are stone.

The second story fenestration has the same left central large double-hung window flanked on each side by narrower matching double-hung windows with matching stone sills and lintels. Above the entry on the second floor is a single double-hung window approximately the same size as the door below with matching stone sills and lintels as the other windows. The cornice is decorated with brick modillions.
