Description

The Silk Building is a very handsome, Italian-Renaissance-palazzo structureat 14 East 4th Street between Broadway and Lafayette Street that was erected in 1908 and converted to a residential condominium with retail spaces in 1982. 

The 12-story building has 56 apartments. 

One of the larger buildings in this neighborhood, the building occupies the entire south side of the street between Broadway and Lafayette Streets and the leasing of its entire retail spaces to Tower Records in 1983 signaled a new era in the area’s retailing and significantly bolstered this area of Broadway to a fever pitch. 

While the area had long been servicing the ever-growing student population of nearby New York University, Tower Records became a major destination store in New York and part of its success was due, in no part, to the historic cultural explosion of talent that was being exposed and discovered at the time on MTV, the Music Television channel whose videos by Madonna, Michael Jackson and many others was a short-lived but incredibly dynamic high point of Twentieth Century culture. 

The elegant renovation of this handsome building was designed by Buttrick, White & Burtis.
