1. 1 Hudson Square
1 Hudson Square, also known as the Holland Plaza Building, was once the headquarters of Astoria Graphics Inc. from 1950 to 2000, the Macmillan Company publishers, The American Book Bindery and the Royal Typewriter Company. It was built in 1930 Ely Jacques Khan, then a renowned 20th Century skyscraper designer, and was named a New York City Landmark in 2013.
It is one of the only buildings, despite some reports of the decline of the printing district not only in Hudson Square but in the city as a whole, that still houses printing’s modern descendants: New York Magazine, Horizon Media, and Splashlight, a modern photography studio.
