Police Building - luxury for the luxury class

The Police Building Apartments, formerly the Police Headquarters Building, at 240 Centre Street, was built in 1905, when Mayor George McClellan laid the cornerstone of this limestome-faced, steel-framed Edwardian Baroque/Beaux-Artspalace capped with a tall dome. When the Police Department relocated in 1973, there was talk of turning it into a community center for Little Italy. In 1983 it became luxury apartments. Surprise, surprise.

Even tho I think privatizing public property is usually a bad move, this would be a tempting place to live (if I won the lottery).

Handsome building--imperious, looking down on all. Reminds me of Dr. T.J. Eckleberg in Gatsby.
