148, 150, and 152 Mercer Street

1860, architect unknown

folding iron shutters

The original folding iron shutters—offering both security and fire protection—still cover the lower level of these three buildings on Mercer Street, which share a common Broadway facade. The once functional iron screens, cast by G. R. Jackson and Co., are now fixed in an open position. (Note the foundry label at 148 Mercer, placed above eye level on the southernmost building element.) Only the iron doors at 148 Mercer still fold back in accordion fashion to allow access to the building.
