The 10-story Mail and Express Building was designed by Carrère & Hastings and constructed in 1892, an early skyscraper in the 19th century. It was home of the New York Evening Mail. The building was T-shaped in form. Its Broadway front measures 25 feet and its depth 100 feet. The Fulton Street front was 77 feet and the depth of that section of the T was 90 feet. The building narrowly escaped destruction by a fire in 1900, but it was demolished in 1920 and replaced by the expansion of the Telephone and Telegraph Building at 195 Broadway. It also replaced the old Western Union Telegraph Building, on the left.
