The Puck Building: Architecturally Distinctive Offices with 14′ Ceilings, Hardwood Floors and Exposed Brick
Known as the Puck Building because it once housed the German-language Puck Magazine, the large red brick building with arched windows was designed in Romanesque Revival style. It entered the pop-culture realm when exterior shots appeared on episodes of the television show Will & Grace.
Over the years the Puck Building housed many printing presses, but now it provides office space for many businesses including architecture firms and digital media companies. Retailer Astor Wines occupies the ground floor. The historic building also contains two large spaces that frequently host special events such as weddings and parties. Both the Grand Ballroom, located on the first floor, and the seventh floor Skylight Room admit plenty of natural light. The Puck Building is also home to the NYU’s Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Puck Building is a New York City landmark.
