The Knickerbocker Building is an eclectic, late century industrial building located at 50-52 Webster Avenue in New Rochelle, New York, USA. It was listed in the National Register of Historic Places as Knickerbocker Press Building in 2000, with description of its architecture as Dutch Colonial Revival .
However, with its Flemish gable, arched windows and decorative brickwork, it falls into the rather rare Flemish Renaissance Revival style. It was built in 1889 by G.P. Putnam and Sons, one of the nation's leading publishers at the time. After 30 years as a publishing house, American White Cross Laboratories, Inc., moved in and manufactured bandages, gauze pads, cotton balls, and related products there until 1995. Parts of the complex were used as artists' lofts during the 1980s and 1990s by artists. The building was converted into residential lofts in 2007.
