A few fun facts about Beekman Place:
  • It was built in 1882 and used to be known as Temple Court. 
  • It is one of the earliest surviving fire-proof buildings built in New York City. 
  • It was the third building in the city to have an elevator installed (they still work and we rode in them!). 
  • You can see the Woolworth Building, built in 1913, through the atrium skylights. 
  • It has been sitting abandoned in the middle of the city for more than a decade. 
  • The building is rumored to be sold to Andre Balazs and being renovated into a luxury hotel.
