This still-functioning dry cleaners, 558 E. 79th, is the work of architect Gerald Siegwart, a modernist who also designed some midcentury homes in the surrounding Chatham neighborhood. Built in 1959, the building has a soaring hyperbolic paraboloid concrete roof that points skyward. The self-supporting roof requires no interior columns, freeing up floor space for more efficient business operations. The boarded-up window, however, is shameful.
