Hecht Warehouse on New York Avenue.

This is a great building if you ever happen to leave town via New York Avenue. Its the old Hecht Company warehouse. My only concern is that it is currently empty, and a developer seems to be trying to drum up business. I’m not too concerned with what goes on in the inside, but I think it is a scarce example of early to mid-century architecture and needs to be saved externally.
