Building Description

There may be no other building quite like The Police Building in Manhattan, let alone New York City. A blend of Romanesque and Beaux-Arts architecture, The Police Building, as its name implies, was originally the headquarters of the New York City Police Department until its relocation in 1973. Located at 240 Centre Street in the heart of Little Italy near the neighborhood's border with SoHo, The Police Building's dominant domed clock tower and exquisite detailing make it one of the most ornate buildings in Manhattan, so it's no wonder that it was chosen to be converted to luxury condominiums. Considering its location, with a wealth of restaurants, shops, music venues, and historic architecture, The Police Building is in a league of its own. For what used to be an office building, the condos for sale at The Police Building are surprisingly spacious and open. With one- to four-bedroom configurations, the residences at 240 Centre Street are flexible, in part due to their loft style. Marble counters are standard, as are wooden cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. Pendant and recessed lighting add subtlety and a warming tone to each condo, seamlessly contrasting with pre-war touches that increase The Police Building's character. Oak floors give way to tiling and stone in the bathroom, which contains a luxurious jet tub and shower combination as well as marble accents. For a historic Manhattan condominium, The Police Building certainly has its fair share of amenities. Upon entering what can only be described as a stunning lobby, complete with crystal chandeliers and intricate ceiling patterns, residents are greeted by a doorman and concierge service, both of whom work with 240 Centre Street's live-in super to assist residents whenever necessary. Police Building residents have access to a private fitness center and, relatively rare for any Manhattan residence, an English garden for relaxing and taking in some fresh air, an oasis of calm from the frenetic island of Manhattan. Few other condominiums can offer their residents so many amenities in such a palatial setting, but The Police Building not only can, but it succeeds.

Little Italy

This neighborhood was once known for its large population of Italian Americans. However, over time, residents moved and surrounding neighborhoods engulfed the outer edges of Little Italy. Today, the area is only a few blocks in size, but its cultural presence is still as large as ever....
