Rouss Building

160-foot, 12-story office building completed in 1890. Designed by Aldred Zucker as a store for Charles Broadway Rouss, a self-made millionaire. He came to New York heavily in debt after the Civil War, before making millions and erecting this building. He legally changed his middle name to honor the street that took him from rags to riches.
