Category:Federal Building and Post Office (Brooklyn)

The Federal Building and Post Office at 271-301 Cadman Plaza East (Washington Street) at the corner of Johnson Street in the Civic Center neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York City was built in two stages. The original building, which was the Brooklyn General Post Office, was built in 1885-1891 and was designed by Mifflin E. Bell, succeeded by William A. Freret, in the Romanesque Revival style. The north addition to the post office is now the U.S. Bankruptcy Court and United States Attorney's Offices. It was built in 1930-33 and was designed by James Wetmore. Both were remodeled in 2000 by R. M. Kliment & Frances Halsband. Both buildings are NYC landmarks (1966) and are on the National Register of Historic Places (1974).
