45 MURRAY STREET, Tribeca

45 Murray Street, part of the Tribeca South landmarked district, is a 4-story building dating from the early 19th Century that was expanded and reconstructed in 1854 by architect Samuel Warner, who designed the Marble Collegiate Church at 5th Avenue and West 29th Street.

The building is notable for its fluted cast iron columns with Corinthian capitals…
