Second and Third Floors – Each of six bays is divided at both levels into three, large, fixed glass, anodized-aluminum-framed windows, with metal sill below and with central, facetted, metal spandrel panels between floors. Apertures are round-headed, with arched portions containing giant fan-lights. Flat, brick masonry of piers extends to form continuous, unornamented parapet with small gable above each bay. Parapet is capped with metal flashing with small, peaked blocks atop each gablet. Additional, large, flat gable set behind parapet contains wide segmental window with anodized framing as elsewhere.
