The Police Building is one of Manhattan's most revered residential properties. Recognized by its Edwardian Baroque style, Beaux-Arts design, and classic dome, the building was designed by the firm of Hoppin & Koen. Built between 1905 and 1909, after the consolidation of the City's five boroughs, the building served as the headquarters of the New York City Police Department until 1973. The Police Building was designated a New York City Landmark in 1978 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. It was converted to a luxury residential cooperative in 1988.
