The entrance to the American Express Company Building at 65 Broadway in 2012

The American Express Building at 65 Broadway in between Morris and Rector Streets in the Financial District of Manhattan, New York City was built in 1914-1917 and was designed by James L. Aspinwall of the firm of Renwick, Aspinwall & Tucker in the Neoclassical style. The 21-story building goes through to Trinity Place, and was the headquarters of American Express until 1975.[1] The building is now sometimes called the Standard & Poors Building, but should not be confused with another building using that name at 25 Broadway. This Class A office building has 10 elevators, is LEED-certified, and qualifies for the Lower Manhattan Energy Program.[2]

The New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission designated the concrete and steel-frame building a New York City landmark in December 1995.[3]
