Not to be confused with Postal Telegraph Building (Seattle).

The Postal Telegraph Building at 253 Broadway on the corner of Murray Street in the Trbeca neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City, was built in 1892-94 for a competitor of Western Union, and was designed by Harding & Gooch in the Neoclassical style. In 1947, the Home Life Insurance Company, which owned the Home Life Insurance Company Building next door at 256-57 Broadway, purchased the Postal Telegraph Building as an annex and consolidated them together internally. The two-building complex was designated a NYC landmark in 1991. (Source: Guide to NYC Landmarks (4th ed.) and AIA Guide to NYC (4th ed.))
