This beautifully intact cast-iron structure dates to 1880. It served as the headquarters of the New York City Woman Suffrage League, which led the late 19th-century effort to extend the vote in New York State to women, while also serving as a home to a variety of significant photographers, artists, philanthropic organizations, and commercial enterprises.
