14. Beecher’s Cheese at 900 Broadway, Manhattan, formerly the Goelet Building

Though not a true triangle-shaped building, the Goelet Building was designed around its corner entrance. Financed and overseen by New York royalty brothers Robert and Ogden Goelet in 1887, the building housed an gas-fixture manufacturer, decorating firm and carpet dealer in its early days. The owner who bought the building in 1970s, Zoltan Justin, remodeled it in 2000 to return it to its former glory.
