Located in the Equitable Building at 120 Broadway, our office is in the heart of New York's Financial District, one block from Wall Street and Broadway. The 40-story Equitable Building spans a full city block bordered by Broadway and Nassau, Pine, and Cedar Streets. The skyscraper was completed in 1915, when it was the largest office building in the world in square-footage. Built on a plot of just less than an acre, the building had 1.2 million square feet of floor space. Built to be the headquarters of the Equitable Life Insurance Company, controversy surrounding its construction (namely, no setbacks to allow sunlight to reach the ground) contributed to the adoption of the first modern building and zoning restrictions on vertical structures in Manhattan. Now dwarfed by taller buildings in its vicinity, it still retains a distinctive identity in its surroundings on Lower Broadway and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1978 and a New York City landmark in 1996.
Nearby hotels include the Holiday Inn - Wall Street, Club Quarters - Wall Street, New York Marriott Downtown, W New York Downtown, and the Millenium Hilton Hotel. Nearby restaurants include The Capital Grille, Fraunces Tavern, Harry's Café & Steak, and Delmonico’s Restaurant.
We are conveniently accessible by subway, bus, and ferry lines and the FDR Drive. By subway, we recommend either the 4 or 5 Lexington Line to Wall Street, where there is underground access to the building (alternatively the N/R/W to Rector Street or the 2/3 7th Ave Line to Wall Street). The office is only a few blocks from the New Fulton Transportation Center. It is also close to the South Street Seaport and the city’s waterfront. Parking is located in a limited number of lots in the area, the closest being the Imperial Parking System garage at 100 Maiden Lane, Gotham Parking at 13 Gold Street, and Quik Park at 70 West Street.
Visitors must stop at the visitors desk to obtain a building pass either at the Broadway or Nassau street entrances.
