New Ron English Popup Shop "Popaganja"; Behind the Scenes at Brooklyn Winery; Live in Little Italy's Police Building Penthouse

NYC - Little Italy: Police Building | The Police Building Apartments, formerly the Police Headquarters Building, at 240 Centre Street, was built in 1905-09 to the design of Hoppin, Koen & Huntington.  Following the creation of Greater New York in 1898, the city's police department expanded rapidly and a large new headquarters building was planned.  In 1905 Mayor George McClellan laid the cornerstone of this limestome-faced, steel-framed Edwardian Baroque/Beaux-Artspalace capped with a tall dome.  When the Police Department relocated in 1973, there was talk of turning it into everything from a hotel to a community center for Little Italy.  In 1983 a development group converted the building into luxury apartments.

The Police Building Apartments were designated a landmark by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1978. 

National Register #80002690 (1980)
