1. The Puck Building Plaque (on front corner of building)
Inscription. Completed in 1889, to designs of Albert and Herman Wagner, this impressive structure, originally the home of the well-known humor magazine Puck, is one of the few surviving buildings from New York's old publishing and printing district. The building was erected in three phases, all under the supervision of Albert Wagner. The building's style is an adaptation of the German Rundbogenstil, a mid-19th century style combining Romanesque and Renaissance elements, and characterized by arcaded round arches.
 
Erected 1989 by New York Landmarks Preservation Foundation with assistance from Tiffany & Co.
