"Heritage of New York"

Erected in 1909, this building was designed by Maynicke and Franke in Italian Renaissance Eclectic Style. The first structure on this site was the farmhouse of Christopher Mildberger, moved here in 1839 during the extension of Fifth Avenue. Thereafter, a Corporal Thompson operated it as a tavern, Madison Cottage, until 1852, when it was replaced by Franconi's Hippodrome. In 1859, the six-storied, white marble Fifth Avenue Hotel, with the first hotel passenger elevator in New York, opened here and became a center of the city's social and political life.
