From the December 18, 1903 edition of the New York Sun:
Newsboys’ Home to Reopen.
The Lodging House Has Been Refitted and the Entrance Moved.
The Newsboys’ Lodging House, at New Chambers and Duane streets, which has been closed since August, is to open again on Saturday night. The building has been improved, the main entrance being now at 14 New Chambers street, instead of on the Duane street side.
The Christmas dinner will be given by William Flies of West Fifty-seventh street, who has given the newsboys a Christmas spread and eaten with them for many years. On account of ill health he will not be able to attend the dinner this year.
