New York Designated Landmark

Thomas DeVinne (1828-1914), for whom this building was named, was a noted and scholarly printer who produced Scribner's Monthly and St. Nicholas Magazine as well as the Century Dictionary and Century Magazine. Babb, Cook & Willard's strong design of 1885 is in the Romanesque style, beautifully executed in brick and terra cotta. It had considerable influence on the design of contemporary commercial buildings. Built before skeletal steel construction was developed, the eight stories are supported by thick masonry bearing walls.
