Theodore L. DeVinne was the city's best and most noble printer of the
late 19th century. Built only with a modest budget,
DeVinne and his architects created a printing press/factory building which
attains a very high esthetic standard.
One of the most impressive industrial facilities to rise in New York, the
design is bold but simple and appropriate for its function. An outstanding
example of the industrial building type from the late 19th century, this
building is still admired by architects and New Yorkers alike.
