Significance: The Loew's Palace Theatre was designed in 1917, by the prominent New York architect Thomas W. Lamb, an acknowledged pioneer of modern theater design. The Palace's facade forms part of a row of nineteenth and early twentieth century buildings at the western end of the busy downtown commercial district. The theater lobby occupies a narrow rectangular site, sharing party walls with the adjoining retail buildings. The three-story auditorium, which occupied a large lot around the corner along Thirteenth Street, was demolished in 1978. The eclectic lobby of Loew's Palace is all that remains of this once-elegant L-shaped theater.
