Temple of the Pythians - Now a Condo

There is/was a fraternal organization of the "Order of the Knights of Pythias" (link); it is still around but at a much reduced size.  They are based on the idea of peace and fraternal love.
.
In New York, they used to be (as Trump would say) YEEOUGE.  They had a Headquarters that is beautiful.  Sometime int he 1980s it was turned into Condos, but the developer kept the external Pythian detail.
Detail above the entry and motto.  I like the capstone to the extreme left as well as the Assyrian Tigers

Entrance with Tigers, motto and colorful columns

Very cool.
