The New Museum Building Overview

158 Mercer Street, which is also known as 583 Broadway between Houston and Prince streets, is regarded as a true “kitchen sink” building because its developers tried to cram virtually every conceivable architectural “amenity” into it. 

Designed by Cleverdon & Putzel in 1897, the 12-story building was converted from an office building to the New Museum of Contemporary Art in 1996. That institution subsequently moved to the Bowery and the building was then converted to a residential condominium. 

The very impressive building, one of the tallest in SoHo, has 19 apartments.
