New York City Designated LandmarkBuilt in 1861, this building is significant as the only remaining cast-iron building façade in the city attributable to James Bogardus, the self-described "inventor of the cast-iron building". Typically, the cast-iron façade was made in the style of a 15th century Italian palazzo and attached to a support structure immediately behind it. It was built as a dry goods storehouse for Kitchen, Montross and Wilcox. Buildings of this type flourished in this section of the city from the mid-1850s to the 1880s.
