The Tiffany and Company Building is the landmarked former home of the Tiffany and Company store at 401 Fifth Avenue, Manhattan, New York City, New York.[4]

This building, completed in 1906, served as the home of Tiffany until 1940.[3] Today, a TD Bank branch, tchotchke shop, and Burger King occupy the ground level. The People's Court is filmed on a set inside the building.[5]

The building was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1978.[3][6]
