Antique Photographs of the Herald Square


In the early 1890, The New York Herald operated in a building on Broadway, near Park Row. In 1895, the newspaper moved to a new building in an area that became known as Herald Square, at the junction of Broadway and 6th Ave. (Avenue of the Americas), in Manhattan.

Part of the building was demolished in 1921 and the bronze sculptures (top of the building) were incorporated into the Bennett memorial on Herald Square. The southern half of the building was leased by the Rogers Peet Company, in 1921, and it still existed in 1936. The other part was occupied by the Herald Square Building, completed in 1930.

The New York Herald newspaper was published between 1835 and 1924, when the company merged with the New-York Tribune to form the New York Herald Tribune.
