Boxes Made of Stone and Steel

Photo taken on Broadway and 20th Street, walking Northwest from Union Square to the Flatiron District. Featured in the center is the neo-Renaissance Warren Building, completed in 1891. In spite of the catchy blog post title, the building is made of Roman brick, trimmed with marble and terra cotta (per I bet there’s steel in there somewhere, too.

Surrounded by other stately structures on all sides, it might be easy to overlook this 7-story building. Still, something about it caught my eye and invited me to snap a pic.
