109 Prince Street

109 Prince Street at the corner of Greene Street – where it is #119 – in the SoHo neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City is a historic cast-iron building. It was built in 1882-83 and was designed by Jarvis Morgan Slade in the French Renaissance style. The cast-iron facade was provided by the architectural iron works firm of Cheney & Hewlett.

The building, originally a store, has been described as one of the most striking gems of the 19th century cast iron architecture in the world. Completely restored in 1993, it was awarded the prestigious Landmark Certificate of Merit by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1994.[citation needed] It is located within the SoHo - Cast Iron Historic District.[1]
