The Police Building, 240 Centre Street - SoHo - Nolita, New York

Amid the tenement buildings of Little Italy, the spectacular Baroque-revival-style Police Building at 240 Centre Street was designed in 1909 to be the headquarters of the city's police department. In 1973, the city opened a new department headquarters to the east of the Municipal Building, and 240 Center Street fell into limbo after many years of neglect. The complete revitalization of SoHo and NoHo as internationally-known destination neighborhoods renewed interest in the property and, in 1988 it was converted into co-op apartments.The 55-unit conversion is one of the nation's finest examples of re-use of historical properties. 240 Centre is easily among the most desirable residences in Lower Manhattan based on the quality of the building and its apartments. The redesigned building boasts a lobby spacious and dazzling enough to rival any luxury hotel in the city. Apartments within are large and varied, and many have very high ceilings. Little Italy is in full blossom a block or two away at Caf?? Roma or the larger, better-known Cafe Ferrara, and SoHo, NoHo, Chinatown, the Financial District and all of downtown Manhattan are a short stroll away.
