Hayes Building

41

151 Walnut Street

Walnut Street was once one of the busiest commercial streets in the city. To alleviate this congestion, “cheap corners” were established. Beginning with Cheap Corner #1, which was located here at the Hayes Building, the goods would get cheaper as a buyer moved up Walnut Street toward Cheap Corner #3. The marker designating Cheap Corner #1 is still located on the southwest corner of this building between the first and second floors.
