Odd Fellows Hall, 165-171 Grand Street (at Centre Street). Built 1847-48; mansard roof added in 1881-82. Designed by the architects Trench & Snook, it is one of the city's earliest Italianate buildings. Manhattan magazine, commenting on the building in 1883, said it had been "one of the ornaments of the city" when it was built, "and is a creditable piece of architecture even now" that "used to attract the attention of every stranger who passed down Broadway."

The New York Times has more to say about it.
