Restoration of the Historic Corbin Building

The Corbin Building is an eight-story time capsule at 192 Broadway and John Street in Lower Manhattan, not far from the World Trade Center site. Completed in 1889, this building is home to architectural details that simply do not, or could not, exist today. It has intricate red terra cotta facade, bronze-plated cast-iron and mahogany spiral staircase, marble wainscoting, and other fine features that make the slender tower unique for any era. The historic Corbin Building has now been beautifully restored, next to the Fulton Street Transit Center that is still under construction.
