The Howard Street Armory is located at 29 Howard Street across the street from where Ted Geisel was born and near the Seuss Bakery operated by his grandparents. Built in 1895, the imposing building resembles a castle with turreted towers that loom over the neighborhood. The appearance of the Armory must have made a big impression on young Ted and seems to have the inspiration for the buildings found in many of his books.
