Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House

The Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House is located at 1 Bowling Green, near the southern end of Manhattan. Named for Alexander Hamilton, a Founding Father, and designed by Cass Gilbert in the Beaux-Arts style, it was erected from 1902 to 1907 to house the Port of New York's duty-collection operations. The building contains the George Gustav Heye Center museum, the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York, and local offices of the National Archives. The facade and part of the interior are New York City designated landmarks, and the building is a National Historic Landmark listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The main entrance consists of a grand staircase flanked by Four Continents, a set of four statues by Daniel Chester French. The United States Customs Service moved out of the building in 1974, and it remained vacant for more than a decade until renovations in the late 1980s. (Full article...)
