Alfred Zucker collection

Architect Alfred Zucker (1852-1913) practiced in Texas, Mississippi and New York. He was instrumental in the development of a new mercantile district on lower Broadway in the late 1880s and designed many warehouses and loft buildings in New York City. He formed a partnership with James Riely Gordon in 1902, but fled to Montevideo, South America in 1904 to escape a lawsuit filed by Gordon who alleged fraud and misrepresentation. Architectural drawings and clippings from architectural periodicals document his career from 1880 to 1902.
