Come take a look and dream. Images have been virtually staged.

Ernest Flagg, a Beaux-Arts trained New York architect designed the "Little Singer Building" in 1902. Its construction began in the spring of 1903, five years before he would create the Singer Tower that for a short time was the world’s tallest building.

The tower came down in 1967, but fortunately the Singer Loft Building at 561 Broadway survived. Since 1979, it has been a co-op with a mixture of residential and commercial uses: 20 offices and 15 live/work units for artists. The airy look of the Little Singer derives from its very wide windows together with the lacy strip balconies across each level.

These balconies have delicate wrought iron railing, sophisticated in design and varying from floor to floor. Over the years beginning in 1983, the aging one time factory was restored by the co-op. This included repainting the decorative ironwork the same deep green color that Flagg had used in 1903.
