23 Wall Street, NY

 

23 Wall Street is on the southeast corner of Broad Street and Wall Street. The office building, more popularly referred to as “The Corner”, is in the very heart of New York City. 23 Wall Street was formerly owned by JP Morgan & Co., and later by the Morgan Guaranty Trust Company. For several years, the building was the headquarters of the well-respected JP Morgan & Co. bank, and it became known as “The House of Morgan”.


The building, designed by Trowbridge and Livingston, was completed in 1914. Its exterior is noted for its architectural form and style, while its tasteful oak paneled interiors are lit by a beautiful crystal chandelier. Across the street are two popular buildings: the New York Stock Exhange and the Federal Hall. 23 Wall Street is very near the Broad Street Station, which is on the New York City Subway’s BMT Nassau Street Line.


In September 16, 1920, the building became the site of the infamous Wall Street Bombing. Over thirty people were killed while 400 were injured. The building was heavily damaged during the incident. Until now, the limestone façade still carries visible damages. The scars on the walls of 23 Wall Street serves as a reminder of the horrific crime that occurred decades ago.
