U.S. Customs House

The Beaux-Art Custom House was opened in 1907 designed by Cass Gilbert who went on to design another landmark nearby, the Woolworth Building.

The same site where Fort Amsterdam was built by the Dutch in the 1620’s

A drawing from 1660; the fort on the upper left at what would become Broadway and the wall at right which would, of course, become Wall Street.

A modern day view (pre-scaffolding) after it became the Smithsonian’s Museum of the American Indian.
