Constructed in 1920, this was the New York headquarters of the International Tailoring Company and its subsidiary, J.T. Taylor & Company. It was one of the world's largest manufacturers of men's custom-made clothing.
From the early to mid-20th Century, the company's "Tailors to the Trade" made suits, topcoats, tuxedos, and other clothing sold by merchant tailors across the U.S. and abroad.
The architechture firm Starrett & Van Vleck designed the building as well as the Lord & Taylor and Saks Fifth Avenue flagship stores in Manhattan.
The building converted to cooperative apartments in 1980. It is owned by the Fourth Avenue Owners Corporation.
Herman Melville lived in a townhouse on this site from 1847 to 1850. He began writing Moby Dick while living here.
