The Queensboro Bridge was built and first opened to traffic in 1909. Guastavino’s resides just beneath this bridge and was designed by Rafael Guastavino and his son. They had a plan to develop the space into a commercial setting for local vendors to utilize. Guastavino is originally from Barcelona and his Catalonian architectural influence is recognizable in the vernacular technology used to construct the vaults. The space was used by local vendors to buy and sell fruits and vegetables until the Great Depression hit. Following those years, this space was used by the city’s Department of Transportation until 1973 when the New York City Landmarks Preservation Committee declared the Queensboro Bridge and the spaces below it a landmark. Guastavino’s has been protected from entrepreneurs looking to develop that area ever since.
