The Devil Faced Building of Fair View

This building on the Fairview Cliffside Park border bears several unusual devil or gargoyle faces on it, along with the numbers 1908 and the letters LC. LC stood for Louis Caporale, who built this building in 1908. The devil faces were likely used as decorations, meant to be gatekeepers as good luck. Corporale came from South America where this type of design was common at the time. There is probably no evil or bad intent, just the opposite in fact.
