Regarding Adrian Block Commemorative Tablet. The Holland Society and the New York Landmarks Conservancy is pleased to announce the public unveiling of the restored 1890 Adrian Block commemorative tablet on Monday, 18 September 2017. A brief ceremony will take place at 45 Broadway (“Broadway Atrium”) at 11:00 a.m.
The bronze commemorative tablet was originally installed in September 1890 at the former Aldrich Court, 41-45 Broadway. When that building was demolished in 1982, the tablet was removed from the building, returned to the Holland Society where it has remained in storage. Earlier this year, the tablet was restored and plans were made to return it to its former location on Broadway, which is today the 45 Broadway Atrium building.
