(l. to r.) 840, 836, and 834 Broadway. The landmarked six-story brick store and loft building at 836 Broadway (center) was designed by Stephen Decatur Hatch in 1876. Its facade is clad in historic cast-iron, and the building features neo-Grec, Second Empire, and Renaissance Revival–style elements. Workers at the clothing manufacturer Freigat & Keim, also located here, participated in the historic shirtwaist strike of 1909-10. Judge James Roosevelt, noted Supreme Court justice and relative of Theodore and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, resided here.
