Fakten

  • The building's visibility is heightened by its comer location near City Hall Park and adjacent to Printing House Square.
  • Designated landmark status on June 15, 1999.
  • The originally called American Tract Society Building, at the southeast comer of Nassau and Spruce Streets, was constructed in 1894-95 to the design of architect R. H. Robertson, who was known for his churches and institutional and office buildings in New York.
  • This was also one of the city's tallest and largest skyscrapers upon its completion.
  • Twenty full stories high (plus cellar, basement and three-story tower) and clad in rusticated gray Westerly granite, gray Haverstraw Roman brick, and buff-colored terra cotta, the building was constructed with a U-shaped plan, having an exterior light court.
  • Combining elements of the Romanesque and Renaissance Revival styles, the design, with two similar principal facades, has an overall tripartite vertical scheme, but is also arranged in six horizontal sections.
  • A three-story arcade, open at the top story and with winged caryatids at the upper comers, surmounts the western half of the building; a three-story hipped roof tower rises through the arcade, creating a picturesque feature in the skyline of lower Manhattan.
  • This was the first building in New York City and the second in the world to reach a height of 20 regular floors. It is also the world's oldest surviving 20-storey building.
  • It is one of the earliest, as well as one of the earliest extant, steel skeletal-frame skyscrapers in New York, partially of curtain-wall construction.
