Former Century Association Building
Former Century Association Building
Now Trinity Broadcasting System, 15th Street, Manhattan, New York City The Century Association Building was designed by the firm of Gambrill & Richardson, 'o€‡€ whose partners were both members of the association and one of whom, Henry Hobson Richardson, went on to become one of this country's most prominent architects. Built in 1869, the building appears to be Manhattan's oldest surviving structure erected as a clubhouse. Its exterior, which remains remarkably intact, heralded a wave of neo-Grec buildings in the early 1870s. The Century Association, founded in 1847 to promote interest in literature and the arts, attracted authors, artists, and amateurs of letters and the fine arts, many of whom were national leaders in their fields. During the era when the Union Square vicinity flourished as New York's amusement district, the organization established its first permanent home in 1857 on this East 15th Street site in an existing dwelling. The Centurions rebuilt the clubhouse in 1869 to the designs of Gambrill & Richardson and remained there until 1891. The Century Association Building is a concrete reminder of the distinguished history of one of New York's most prominent institutions. The only part of the former clubhouse which currently is visible from the street is its symmetrical, three-bay facade, which is faced in stone (now painted blue-gray), red brick, and gray slate tiles. The raised basement of chiseled ashlar (a simplication of the original stonework) has doorways (originally window openings) in the side bays, each of which is framed by quoining, contains a pair of glazed metal doors, and is reached via a staircase with rustoric iron railings. (The signage at the eastern doorway was installed in 1992.) The band course above the base is interrupted by the central segmentally-arched entrance whicb is flanked by narrow cheek walls, contains a pair of glazed metal doors and a plexiglass transom, and is reached by marble steps. The cheek walls support a stane enframement with a cornice supported by end brackets and a raised keystone. Running along the bottom of the first story, a broad stone band is interrupted at the side bays by the window surrounds. which are simplified versions of the central surround and contain historic iron grilles. The second story features three stone-framed openings that rest on a stone cornice. The slightly wavy brick surface of these two stories is almost flush with its white mortar. The terminal cornice is surmounted by a steeply sloped-mansard roof, covered with slate tiles, pierced by three dormers, and framed between brick end walls with coping. A historic two- double-hung wood sash window survives at the western bay of the attic; the remaining openings have different configurations of wood sash windows. A metal downspout survives at the east side of the facade and a flagpole has been added at the center bay. On the basis of a careful consideration of the history, the architecture and other features of this building, the Landmarks Preservation Commission finds that the (former) Century Association Building has a special character, special historical and aesthetic interest and value as part of the development, heritage and cultural characteristics of New York City. The Commission further finds that, among its important qualities, the (former) Century Association Building was designed by the firm of Gambrill & Richardson, whose partners were both members of the association and one of whom, Henry Hobson Richardson, went on to become one of this country's most prominent architects; that the building, which was built in 1869, is the oldest known surviving structure erected as a clubhouse in Manhattan; that its stone-trimmed brick exterior, which remains remarkably intact, heralded a wave of neo-Grec buildings in the early 1870s; that the building replaced the organization's first permanent home, which had been established near Union Square in 1857, when that vicinity flourished as the city's amusement district; that the Century Association, founded in 1847 to promote interest in literature and the arts, attracted authors, artists, and amateurs of letters and the fine arts, many of whom were national leaders in their fields, and remained at this site until 1891; and that the building survives as a concrete reminder of the distinguished history of one of New York's most prominent institutions. - From the 1993 NYCLPC Landmark Designation Report
