Church Street Station Post Office, New York
The Federal Office Building at 90 Church Street was constructed between 1934 and 1935 by the Treasury Department Public Buildings Bureau, and includes the Church Street Station Post Office. It occupies the entire city block bounded by between Church Street and West Broadway and Vesey and Barclay Streets. The architecture spans neo-Classical and Art Deco styles and was designed by a team of Cross & Cross, Pennington, Lewis & Mills, under the direction of Louis A. Simon, Supervising Architect of the Department of the Treasury. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.
The building suffered some damage during the September 11, 2001 attacks, after which it had to be thoroughly cleaned of pollutants. It still houses offices for state and local, as well as federal, agencies.
