Carter Horsley's Review of The Morse Building

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"The New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission unanimously designated the 14-floor Morse Building at 140 Nassau Street as an individual landmark September 19, 2006.

The building was designed by Benjamin Silliman and James Farnesworth and was completed in 1880 as an 8-story office building with two hydraulic elevators, gas lighting and fireplaces. It had been developed by G. Livingston Morse and Sidney E. Morse, nephews of Samuel F. B. Morse, the inventor of the telegraph and a prominent artist." Read Carter's Full Review
