Day 798

Prentis Hall

March 7th, 2014

Owned by Columbia University since 1949, this 1911 building was originally a milk processing plant operated by Sheffield Farms (whose "Class I gravity milk plant" — one of only two in the country when it opened in 1914 — we saw in the Bronx). Sheffield was later joined in the neighborhood by Borden, which converted the nearby Studebaker building into a milk plant in 1937.
