Adams Express Building

Adams Express Building is an office building located at 61 Broadway in lower Manhattan in New York City.

The architect was Francis Kimball. The building was built in 1912 on the property numbers 57-61 Broadway, with numbers 33-41 Trinity Place. It is a 32-story office building which cost $2 million.[1]

The Financial Times reported that The Adams Express Building has a colourful history that includes a first world war explosion and the discovery of basement-dwelling goldfish.

"Perhaps of greater relevance to its Wall Street neighbours, the loan used to build the near century-old skyscraper was also one of the first to be bundled and securitised into a commercial real estate bond."
