SAMUEL I FOX BUILDING-1929

Broadway and 6th Avenue.
Entrepreneur Samuel Fox built this four story, $500,000 structure to accomodate his Lion Clothing Company, the sole tenant of the building until 1984. Showcasing 16-foot ceilings, antique oak wood paneling, walnut window frames, cast-iron decorative grills, heraldic lions in full relief, sculptured terra cotta spandrels, and an overhanging tile roof, the building was recognized as an artistic masterpiece as well as a merchandising success.
