Exactly. Of course it's no accident that so many of the storied old houses were built in the art deco style, because so many came online from the very late 20s through the 30s, when art deco was all the rage. The other big fad was what was called the "atmospherics," championed by architect John Eberson among others, that featured the star ceilings, and exotic interiors in Oriental and Middle Eastern motifs. They're all wonderful.

Cineboxes will never come close. It's a tragedy.
