This amazingly rare invitation to the opening of New York Mercantile Exchange's new building in 1886 has been professionally framed. The invitation was for Wednesday, April 7th, 1886 at two o'clock. It features a beautiful etching of the building located at Hudson & Harrison Streets. The NY Mercantile Exchanged occupied this building until the 1970s.

The NY Mercantile Exchange was founded in 1872 as the Butter and Cheese Exchange of New York as a place to buy and sell commodities. They changed their name to the New York Mercantile Exchange in 1882. The Mercantile Exchange moved to their new building in 1885 where it operated until 1977. It eventually moved to the 4 World Trade Center through the 90s. In 2008, they were purchased by the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and are now located in the World Financial Center in Manhattan.
