This was the first building in the world ever to reach 30 floors, and is the tallest skyscraper in the world from the 19th Century.The architect could not decide whether to present the building as a freestanding skyscraper or as a simple infill. As a result, Park Row Building combines characteristics of both building forms.Ten years before the construction of this building, there were only six towers in New York over 10 stories.The Park Row Building was the tallest skyscraper in the world from 1899 until 1908 when it was surpassed by the Singer Building.The two main wings are yoked together on the west side by a series of bridge beams in front of the courtyard.Floors 1125 hold 210 residential units.The two towers that rise above the crowning cornice are capped by ornamented domes which immediately distinguished this structure when it was added to the skyline of New York City at the turn of the century.The building housed the offices of the Associated Press news agency which had been incorporated in New York in 1900, as well as the headquarters of August Belmont's Interborough Rapid Transit Company.The City of New York designated the Park Row Building as an official landmark on June 15, 1999.A very narrow wing on the back side touches Theater Alley, creating the illusion of an eyepoppingly slender skyscraper. A shot of this architectural wonder appeared in the movie The Fisher King.This is one of several surviving late19th Century office towers on a street that became known as Newspaper Row, the center of newspaper publishing in New York City from the 1840s to the 1920s.The design features a number of classical elements, including four large sculpted figures set on over scaled brackets, huge columns and pilasters, as well as several projecting ornamental balconies.Located across from City Hall Park, the Park Row Building remains, by virtue of its height and twin cupolatopped towers, one of the most distinctive buildings in lower Manhattan.


Financial District

Home to many of Manhattan’s major financial institutions, the aptly named Financial District is located towards the southern end of the island. Two of Manhattan’s major streets, Wall Street and Broad Street, can be found in the area. Some must-see places for businesses include the New York Stock Exchange and the Federal Reserve Bank. The South Street Seaport outdoor mall has a number of shops for employees to explore.  Furthermore, Stone Street, a pedestrian-only, cobblestone street is home to numerous restaurant and bar options.  When the weather permits, take advantage of the outdoor seating areas for optimal people-watching.  

Attractions in the area include The New York City Police Museum and the Museum of American Finance. Additionally, during times of celebration, the city comes alive for the ticker-tape parade whose route is known as the Canyon of Heroes.

For workers who put in long hours at the office and want to live nearby, the Financial District may be the perfect option for you. In terms of average rent for office space, you will be hard-pressed to beat the Financial District’s $53/sqft.  It’s no wonder companies from a number of industries have joined the likes of Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, and American Express as office neighbors in the Financial District.

Nearby Districts Include: Tribeca, and Chinatown.
