New York in New York County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
A Tower Of Music
Carl Fischer Music Publishers
56-62 Cooper Sq.
By 1880, Fischer had moved to larger quarters on Cooper Square and in 1922 commissioned architect W.K. Benedict to design this 12-story, Neo-Classica; building of steel and reinforced concrete with brick and limestone facing. The company moved its headquarters to Bleeker Street in 1999, and Wall Street in 2013. The sheet music has been replaced by treadmills, the presses by condominiums.
