The E.V. Haughwout Building is a five-story, 79-foot tall, commercial loft building in at the corner of Broome Street and Broadway. Built in 1857 to a design by John P. Gaynor, with cast-iron facades for two street-fronts provided by Daniel D. Badger's Architectural Iron Works, it originally housed Eder V. Haughwout's fashionable emporium, which sold imported cut glass and silverware as well as its own hand painted china and fine chandeliers and which attracted many wealthy clients – including Mary Todd Lincoln, who had new official White House china made there.
