316-18 Bowery

This Italianate style building reflects the changing nature of the Bowery following the Civil War when two and three story Federal style houses were replaced by larger multi-purpose buildings. One of architect Nicholas Whyte's earliest projects, he lavished this 1868 commission with an elaborate use of limestone lintels, sills and quoins set off against red brick walls. The second story Bowery façade is cast-iron with large two-over-two window panes. The slate-clad mansard roof is punctuated by a four-story corner tower and round-arch dormer windows.
Although originally intended to be a store and dwelling, the upper floors soon became a warehouse. In 1894, it operated as a hotel and, in 1915, a shop and factory. Several long-term tenants included two hat shops - Herman Rosenberg Hats (c. 1935-60) and the Universal Hat manufacturing Company (c. 1935-1975) - and two hardware stores - Morris Feuer Hardware (c. 1920-55) and Bleeker Hardware Company (c. 1935-75). This restored corner, in the NoHo East Historic District, now houses loft apartments and the restaurant Saxon & Parole, named in honor of two 19th century prize-winning horses.
