img_0937

The headquarters of the New York State Police in New York City is located on Wards Island. The two-story building is uniform in design with a three bay entrance and rows of triple hung windows above blue enamel panels. There is a granite foundation including a cornerstone inscribed to Governor Nelson Rockefeller, who was in office when the building was built in 1961. The design of the administration building is standard for this era and is similar in style to numerous schools and government buildings that dot the region.
