ID: 42
Name: 256-262 West 116th Street
Address: 256-262 West 116th Street, southeast corner Eighth Avenue (Frederick Douglass Boulevard)
Block and Lot: Block: 1831 Lot: 61
Neighborhood: Upper Manhattan
Date: 1894 (NB 592-1894)
Original Use: Commercial
Original Owner: F. H. Walker
Foundry: unknown
Style: Neo-Renaissance
Other Information: Built as a second-class store structure. Stylistically a date of 1894 appears to be correct and the lot size for this new building permit (NB 592-94) is the same as that for the present building. However, the docket book entry records a two-story building of wood, iron, and glass, rather than a five-story building. Spandrels appear to be pressed metal.
