Established as B.Altman & Company in 1865, this building was known as one of New York’s most successful retail stores. When demand grew, the property owner hired renowned architects Kimball and Thompson to extend the space to include a carriage house. Renamed in 1998, The Altman Building may have changed ownership over the years, but the triumph of architecture that it exhibits remains largely the same. Much of the original Renaissance Revival design can still be seen in the modern-day beauty of this event space.
