Gilded tower of the Thurgood Marshall United States Courthouse

    Newer Older

    The last work of Cass Gilbert, the architect behind the Woolworth Building, and one of the last Neoclassical Federal buildings constructed in Manhattan. It is composed of a base constructed like a Greek Temple and a tower topped with a gilded pyramid. Later, it was renamed to honor Supreme Court justice Thurgood Marshall.

    I say a little more about the courthouse on my New York City landmarks blog, The Masterpiece Next Door.

      Great shot and great Blog!
      Want to discuss the skyscrapers of Downtown in a 1901 Shorpy panorama?
      It is a great shot worthy of your excellent blog and work like the 1907-8 Skyline of NYC which you did with Bldg overlays.
