I couldn’t fit all the material I had into my post about the 14th Regiment Armory from yesterday, or else it would have been way too long. So I saved some of my pics from the interior of the drill hall for today, below.

Meanwhile, I just can’t say enough about this spot (a.k.a. Park Slope Armory), a classic example of vintage armory gymnasium style.

You also have to give it up for Mayor Bloomberg, who approved the whole thing. Here’s a photo of the mayor with the architectural rendering of the renovation, at the announcement of the project back in 2004:

Finally, you can tell that this week’s theme is the Smart Set Athletic Association, and all of their innovations 100 years ago.

Speaking of the Smart Set, have you ever wondered who its members were, and where exactly in Brooklyn they lived?

I’ll get into some of that detail tomorrow.
