Produce Exchange: 1884 - 1957


One of several buildings designed by George B. Post to be razed in NYC, it was among the first to be built with a true iron skeleton. A remarkable facade of repetitive arched windows surrounded by a rich dark red brick and terra cotta bas-reliefs depicting the produce traded within. Quoted by Nathan Silver, the author of Lost New York, as one of the best buildings in New York to be replaced after by one of the worst at No. 2 Broadway.
