Where: 418-434 Fulton Street
Why: Abraham & Straus was founded as Joseph Wechsler & Company in 1865. In 1883, the owners purchased the recently constructed, mansarded French Second Empire style cast iron “Wheeler Building” on Fulton Street, converting it into their fashionable emporium. In 1884, a handsome Romanesque Revival style warehouse of golden brick and stone was added on Livingston Street.
