Once the tallest building in New York City, the Morse Building built in 1880 has just 39 units, 3 apartments per floor, and is located in the vibrant Financial District, adjacent to City Hall Park and Tribeca. The American Vitagraph Company was among the early tenants of the building, where in 1898 the creation of one of the first motion pictures took place on the roof.
