2. Dos Caminos at 675 Hudson St, Manhattan, former Herring Lock and Safe Company Building

Now a location for Mexican chain Dos Caminos, this building was originally built in 1849 for the Silas C. Herring Lock and Safe Company. Also according to the Bowery Boys, it was originally only four stories high, but another story was added after Herring passed away and it was converted to a general storefront in 1883.

It had a much different history in the 1980s and 90s, when it housed a variety of erotic clubs like the Vault, the Hellfire Club and the Manhole. It’s also quite cinematic, as it’s been seen in Fatal Attraction and The Hours.

    I *think” I may have seen photos of at least one somewhere in upper Manhattan (Fort George, Hudson Heights, Inwood), but I can’t find any at the moment!

      Yes, we were thinking about it! We were worried people were going to say it was not technically triangular with a flat front and back. But we can add it!

      umm…There is a photo of the whole building on the top of the article on the same page! The roof is show an alternative, “untapped” view because the roof is off-limits usually. But we’ll switch it up anyway.
