Fakten

  • The two lowest floors originally provided retail space for the company's subsidiary, the United States Tire Company, while U.S. Rubber occupied eight of the office stories.
  • Designated landmark status on December 19, 2000.
  • In this building, as in their other works, Carrere and Hastings used their training at the French Ecole des Beaux Arts to create an impressive design for a tall building where the skeleton construction is expressed by the thin stone veneer which is obviously non-weight-bearing.
  • Designed by the prominent architectural firm Carrere & Hastings, this office building features delicately-carved marble facades crowned by a broad copper cornice.
  • The two lowest floors of this building were remodeled in 1959 for a bank.
  • This elegant, Beaux-Arts style, twenty-story office building was constructed in 1911-12 for the United States Rubber Company at a time when the automobile was beginning to exert a powerful influence on American society.
  • Located on Broadway, along the section known as "Automobile Row," the U.S. Rubber Company Building was one of the most prominent and important of the many automobile-related structures concentrated here.
  • The design, which continues around both the Broadway and 58th Street facades, features a distinctive rounded corner and vertically-grouped windows with metal spandrels and thin, continuous piers.
