Description & Building Alterations

Built as an Old-Law tenement, 103 East 10th Street was built in 1880 as a five-story brick building with brownstone front and designed by F.W. Klemt with a tin roof and galvanized iron cornice.  The building underwent major alterations in 1962 and 1984 and the original facade was replaced.

Tiffany & Co. founder Charles Tiffany and his family, including son Louis Comfort Tiffany, lived in a previously existing building on this site from 1858 to 1860. Louis Comfort Tiffany, who lived here during his childhood, later became the first design director at Tiffany & Co. and an artist and designer best known for his work in stained glass. This is one of three East Village addresses in which the family lived; they previously lived at both 227 and 125 East 10th Street.
