Tho New Fourth Avenue.
Probably no otlim'inmrtor of Manhnt-
! tun has changed ho much in ro short n
tiino ns has Fourth tivoniio. 1 wo years
no that part of it which lies between
Union Square and Thirtieth street was
flanked by antique furnittiro shops nnd
i by hotels which had been fashionable
when tho Hialto was in Fourteenth
street. Everything; about tho avenuo,
even that which was most attractive,
conveyed tho Impression of Rented do-
I cay. This half mile stretch is now biir
Restivk less of uro than of an intensely
modern vitality. Most of tho houses
I that Ravo it character have disappeared
! and in their places are tall commercial
In two years fifteen Iiuro business
j building havo Rono up thero. The
'largest of them occupies a whole block
I front, the smallest somewhat less than
I half a block. Tho tallest is twenty
stories high and the lowest twelve, the
average lor tho group is sixteen stories,
They havo transformed a quiet avenuo
of retail stores into a thoroiiRhfare given '
( up to wholesale merchantry. Tho ox- ',
.tout of tho transformation is of itself i
noteworthy, indicative of tho business
'expansion required in a town which I
i adds half a million to its population1
every tlinv years; but im-re growth and
bustle would be a poor compensation for
the loss of what was charminglv old i
I fashioned in Fourth avenue.
An appraisal of the merit of tho now
architecture is made by Mr. A. 0. David i
in the Architectural Record. He jvoints
out that these buildings, grouped to
gether in such a way as to produce a
unified effect, represent n distinctive
American typo of architecture' For
reasons which need not iw mentioned
hero Kuroe has evolved no specific
I commercial style of design. All Kuro
ean buildings used for business pur
poses havo been designed us modifica
tions of urban residential styles. The
American skyscraper is a product of
local environment, and in tho processor (
its cvelution European traditions have
boon gradually eliminated.
The now Fourth Avenue, Mr. David
i says, exemplifies an artistic advance in
"The advance tia come about hy way of a
candid attempt to design building which satl.

living, and they do so without cither any bUtiscr. I
vlence In tradition or any revolutionary depar
ture from It. The are atwolutcty a cave of the
survival of the fittest the fittest, that l. under
existing conditions. The condition' will change
both trsthctlcally ar.d practical!) . but any future
advanco of American commercial architecture
will depend upon a further development of the
Ideas and the method which have made these
fourth avenue building what Ihey are
The new buildings are frankly adapted
1 to business niuirements; no money has
been wasted in imitative onmmcnta-
tion, and their designers have relied for
' pleasing effects upon simplicity of lines
and harmony of color.
