The Manhattan Municipal Building

A view at the Manhattan Municipal Building (New York City). This New York City landmark was built during the 1909-1914 timeframe. Its architect was William M. Kendall of McKim, Mead and White. The limestone building incorporates Roman, Italian Renaissance and Classical styles of architecture. A major feature in the design is an open plaza, screened by Corinthian columns, that appears to be carved out of the first three stories of the structure. The plaza flows into a central triumphal arch, inspired by the Arch of Constantine. This building was the first New York City building to incorporate a subway station at its base—July 20, 2011
