“Ten & Taller” Village Edition: Give My Regards to Broadway

Currently the Skyscraper Museum in Battery Park City is hosting an exhibit “Ten & Taller: 1874-1900” that “examines every single building 10 stories and taller that was erected in Manhattan between 1874 through 1900.”

There is even a map that goes along with it. In the Village, many buildings that fit within these criteria can be found along Broadway. Given the street’s history during the gilded age- specifically as part of the “Ladies Mile- it’s no surprise that these buildings were constructed, and can still be found, along this thoroughfare. Below is a list of some of the buildings that can still be found along this street today. Also, to learn more about these buildings and the time period, be sure to visit the Skyscraper Museum and see the exhibit, as well as check out the book, “The Gilded Age in New York: 1870-1910,” by Esther Crain, who conducted a Ladies Mile walking tour for GVSHP back in November.
