Description

One of the great skyscrapers of Lower Manhattan, this Gothic Revival-style tower at 55 Liberty Street on the northeast corner at Nassau Street was erected in 1910 and designed by Henry Ives Cobb. 

It is known as Liberty Tower. Over the years its office tenants included the Sinclair Oil Company and a precursor of the accounting firm of Coopers Lybrand. 

In 1979, Joseph Pell Lombardi, an architect, converted this 33-story skyscraper to a cooperative residential building with 86 apartments. 

It was designated an official New York City landmark in 1982.
