935–939 Broadway is a six-story Italianate brownstone structure designed by the architect Griffith Thomas in the Flatiron District of Manhattan, New York City.


The six-story Italianate building, commissioned by Richard Mortimer, was built between 1861–1862 and was designed by architect Griffith Thomas.[1] Throughout its lifetime, the structure has been referred to as the Mortimer Building, the Albert Building, and the Glenham Hotel.[2] Early tenants include Bryant, Stratton & Packard's New York City Business College[3] and the J.&C. Johnston Dry Goods company[1] that opened in 1881.[4] The building originally had five stories and a sixth story was added in 1919 by the architects Rouse & Goldstone.[3]

Glenham Hotel

Conflicting information exists[2] that refers to this building as the former Glenham Hotel. The Glenham Hotel however has been listed as 153 and 155 Fifth Avenue,[5][6] which appears to be the address next door where the Scribner Building now stands.[1]

On April 2, 1882, 51-year-old Cornelius Jeremiah Vanderbilt committed suicide in his fifth floor room, number 80, by firing his Smith & Wesson revolver into his left temple.

In 2021, the building will be the site of the first official Wizarding World and Harry Potter flagship store in New York City, set to be called "Harry Potter New York."[7]
