Believe it or not, World's largest circulation weekly, TIME magazine with a readership of 25 million, had a modest start in 1922 in this small building at 141 East, 17th Street in New York City.

"In the late winter of 1922, two young Yale University graduates, Briton Hadden and Henry Robinson Luce, rented the parlor floor of an old house at 141 East 17th Street in New York for $55 a month, bought some tables and chairs for a total of $48.70, and sat down to write a prospectus for a new weekly newsmagazine to be called, after considerable reflection, Time."
