Donald Albrecht, the curator of architecture and design at the Museum of the City of New York, lives in a prewar one-bedroom apartment at Southgate, a set of five Art Deco buildings on East 52nd and 51st Streets.

An Eames leg splint, a peculiar-looking plywood device created to
help World War II soldiers, hangs on the bedroom wall.
