Category:Potter Building (Manhattan)
The Potter Building, at 38 Park Row on the corner of Beekman Street, a full-block building also known as 145 Nassau Street, in the Civic Center neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City, was built in 1882-86 and was designed by Norris G. Starkweather in a combination of the Queen Anne and neo-Grec styles, as an office building. It employed the most advanced fireproofing methods then available, and its terra-cotta detailing provoked the developer, Orlando B. Potter, to start his own terra cotta company. The building was converted into apartments in 1979-81, and was designated a NYC landmark in 1996. (Source: Guide to NYC Landmarks (4th ed.))
