New York Clearing House Association, Financial District, NYC

In Lower Manhattan at the intersection of Broad, Bridge and Pearl Streets sits this quirky little low-rise civic looking building. A glance in the entrance shows a tiny lobby with a small, cheap door and side staircase, more akin to a stage set than an actual entrance. The building is from 1962 and designed by Rogers and Butler, now Butler Rogers Baskett. It still houses its original tenants, an obscure branch of the banking industry. Since the building sold its air rights to the looming Broad Financial Center behind, the Clearing House structure has probably remained longer than expected.
