141 EAST 17TH STREET
Architect: unknown; front extension, Jobst Hoffmann
unknown; front extension, 1889

No. 141in 1992

This building is of interest for the flamboyant two-story front extension that was added in 1889 for owner/occupant Louise Bruner. This extension was planned with a store on the first floor and a residence above. the addition, faced in pressed metal, is somewhat Germanic in feeling with its six rectangular windows separated by attenuated colonnettes with bulbous bases. Above each window is a blind round arch. The cornice is supported by dwarf columns and is crowned by a parapet pierced by open roundels. In 1922, Henry Luce and Briton Hadden rented an office in the building. It was here that the came up with the idea of publishing the news magazine that became known as Time.
