They don't make em like they used to!

110 year old building's used to have just one stair.  So the Architects really put some effort into the design.  The handrails are just incredibly detailed, the stair treads are marble and the landings are terrazzo.  Bet you can't find a fire stair in the past 50 years that has as much custom details as this one.  I'm sure there are may of this era, but this part of the building is where the least amount of money is spent today.  The sprinkler pipe was not part of the original design of course.  The railings are very cool cast iron.  Enjoy.
