Brooks Brothers: “Makers and Merchants in One”

Hundred Year Member and leader in classic menswear celebrates its 198th anniversary.

On April 7, 1818, at the age of 45, Henry Sands Brooks opens H. & D.H. Brooks & Co. on the Northeast corner of Catherine and Cherry Streets in New York City.

Being the oldest clothing retailer in the country came with many obstacles. In business and in clothing Brooks Brothers has continued to put quality and care first. It is why today we celebrate this tremendous milestone.

5 Ways JB&B is Building NYC’s Future

Jennifer Yeboah : October 8, 2015 7:49 am : Association News

Jaros, Baum & Bolles has been helping to build the great city we know today since 1915. Here are some of the top projects JB&B is lending their expertise to:

1) The Whitney Museum of American ArtWhitney Museum

The Whitney, now in its new location in the Meatpacking District, introduces more New Yorkers to a bigger and better cultural destination. The $720 million project includes state-of-the-art facilitates for enhanced education and performing arts programs. The 9-floor, 200,000 square foot building offers a more extensive collection of modern art with spaces designed to better connect the viewer to the art.

2) Moynihan Station
Moynihan Station

Finally, an easier way to send that letter and catch your train. The Moynihan Station project, which is now underway, will convert the James A. Farley Post Office on 31 Street and Eighth Avenue into the city’s next transportation hub.

The project, which broke ground in 2010, is set to complete its first phase of construction in 2016, with a proposed $1 billion budget to improve the city’s infrastructure and make the commute for the 9.5 million annual riders a little smoother.

3) Hudson Yards
Hudson Yards

The new neighborhood, Hudson Yards, will bring office space, residential buildings and retail opportunities closer to the Far West Side. The site, which is currently being constructed along Tenth, Eleventh and Twelfth Avenues, will sit on top of the Hudson Rail Yards.

The neighborhood is also the site of the 7 Line subway expansion, which will make access to developing communities on the Far West Side easier. Hudson Yards is set to be completed in 2018.

4) World Trade Center

The revitalization of Lower Manhattan is a mainly attributed to the reconstruction of the World Trade Center. The site, which holds tremendous meaning for all New Yorkers, is now home to a new wave of businesses.

JB&B’s work on WTC One, 2, 3, 4 & 7 as well as on the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, has helped to reclaim an area that has come such a long way and redefined what it means to be a New Yorker.

 5) Public Safety Answering Center II
Public Safety and Answering Center II

Safety is what keeps our city running. The city’s second emergency communications dispatch center, located in the Bronx, is meant to provide support to NYC’s bravest in the event of a natural disaster or large-scale emergency. The joint operation, led by the NYPD, FDNY,  and NYCDOITT,  provides a centralized location for emergency response throughout the entire city. The blast-resistant building was designed as a perfect square with minimal windows for security.
