The cornerstone of the 71st New York Infantry Regiment building was laid on December 17, 1892, and the 71st moved to this site on March 31, 1894. The former building on the intersection of Broadway, 6th Avenue and 35th Street was demolished to make way for the old Herald Building. It later moved to 125 West 14th Street.
