Marine Building




Each time I walk past the Marine Building I feel the need to snap another photo. The intricate art deco design is fascinating with its marine life, ships, biplanes and zeppelins, telling the story of a coastal city flexing its muscles in 1930. Step inside the foyer to see five brass elevators that used to be the fastest in the city at 700 feet a minute, and marvel at the elaborate tile work with its ships, waves and sea life. Designed by the architectural firm of McCarter & Nairne, it's truly a classic.
