138 Broadway, Williamsburg
The Smith Gray Building is an early, significantly intact, cast-iron loft building standing on the corner of Broadway and Bedford Avenue. The 6-story historic property was constructed in 1902. It is believed that the name, Smith Gray Building, was borrowed from a nearby business on Broadway that manufactured ready-made clothes for children. The building’s façade features tiered upper stories with segmented fenestration framed by Corinthian columns and pilasters. The Smith Gray Building has unique historical & aesthetic value as part of the development, heritage, and cultural characteristics of New York City. 40 Condo units, and 12 floor plans, exist within the building. Most units resemble lofts, with high wooden ceilings that match the flooring, iron columns, and oversized factory windows.
