Sporting News Building
2012-2018 Washington Avenue
Architect: Albert B. Groves

Originally an Emerson Electric Company factory. Home to the Sporting News newspaper until 1969. Renovated in 2002 as loft condos.

A long-vanished neighbor, whose height can be read from the change in the tone of the brick mortar, made the light well indendation necessary.

    A former fire station, likely dating back to the 1890s, with a later addition to the rear. Most recently home to the Parish O Company, a metal finishing supply and equipment business.

    Passing a few smaller commercial buildings, one enters the great loft district of Washington Avenue.
