James Bogardus Viewing Garden
James Bogardus (1800-1874) was an architect, engineer and inventor who devised the iron front building and the freestanding iron towers and shot towers that foretold the construction of the skyscraper as a building type. Bogardus built the world's first iron-cast building (1849) at the northwest corner of Washington and Murray Streets. Two surviving Bogardus cast-iron buildings can be seen nearby at 75 Murray Street (1857) and 85 Leonard Street (1860).
The James Bogardus Viewing Garden, dedicated in 1996, is a community project maintained by Friends of Bogardus Triangle of the Tribeca Community Association, 75 Laight Street, New York, 10013. Your support and participation is welcome.
