Italianate Manhattan Tribeca

23 Park Place Building was constructed in 1856-57 for the dry goods firm Lathrop, Ludington & Co.  It is a distinguished example of the mid-nineteenth century party-wall store-and-loft building that can be found in the Tribeca area of lower Manhattan. Both facades of the five-story structure have similarly articulated unified facades influenced by the Italian Renaissance palazzo. The upper stories are faced in stone and united to the 25 Park Place Building by molded sill courses at the second and fifth floors and a molded string course at the fourth floor with alternating panels and roundels.

The building  is embellished with a hierarchy of classically inspired window treatments including articulated surrounds with alternating bracketed triangular and segmental pediments adapted from the Farnese Palace in Rome, elegant bracketed projecting lintels, projecting lintels and finely carved eared moldings surrounding round-arched windows.

“HDC provided guidance and shared information during that process—we knew which Council members were going one way or another and we changed a few minds. I don’t think NoHo would have had as cohesive a district had it not been for HDC’s aid.”

“I remember Richard saying at a meeting, we have someone here from HDC, Nadezhda Williams, Director of Preservation and Research, to help us. She said to us, ‘You are not the only ones going through this.’ HDC included us in an enormous community”
