Fakten

  • The Morse Building was one of the world's first prismatically shaped skyscrapers and, at 140 feet, one of the tallest buildings in New York when built.
  • Its sheer walls and flat roof were a departure from designs of previous buildings topped by step-backs, mansard roofs, or towers.
  • It was developed by G. Livingston and Sidney E. Morse, nephews of telegraph inventor Samuel F. B. Morse.
  • An important early tenant was the American Vitagraph Company, which created a motion picture studio on the roof at a time (1898-1903) when indoor filming was still difficult.
  • In 1900 the building was sold and radically altered to its present form, with the top two floors removed and six added, and the bottom two floors remodelled in a neo-classic style.
  • The alterations destroyed the building's architectural integrity.
  • The building was converted to co-op apartments in 1980.
  • The Morse Building at 140 Nassau Street was designated an individual landmark on September 19, 2006.
