The Police Building, 240 Centre Street

Co-op located in NoLiTa/Little Italy, between Broome Street & Grand Street

Description of The Police Building at 240 Centre Street

The Police Building is located at 240 Centre Street in Little Italy and previously served as the headquarters for the NYPD.

Originally constructed in 1909, the Police Building was vacant for more than a decade following the NYPD’s transition to a new facility near City Hall. It was ultimately converted into 55 apartments in the 1980s, with the group overseeing the renovation ensuring residences maintained the building’s singular architectural touches. There are varied floor plans, as a result, and units are spacious with tall ceilings – many higher than 15 feet – and open layouts.

Amenities include an attended lobby, a garden and a health club. It is conveniently located close to the shops and restaurants in Nolita, TriBeCa, SoHo and NoHo. Public transportation is also nearby.

Carter Horsley's Review of The Police Building

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"Smack in the middle of Little Italy's tenements, the Police Building at 240 Centre Street between Broome and Grand streets is a spectacular Baroque-revival-style palace.

It was designed by Hoppin & Koen in 1909, when architects and planners were still under the influence of the image of the "White City," the Beaux Arts inspired notion of a beautiful city that had been highlighted at the World's Colombian Exposition in Chicago in 1893." Read Carter's Full Review
