Built in 1909, and designed by Henry Ives Cobb, Liberty Tower is one of the early romantic skyscrapers. It is a 33 story Gothic Revival landmark building. In 1980, the conversion of Liberty Tower introduced residential use to the Financial District. Joseph Pell Lombardi, as both architect and investor, designed the interiors, restored the historic elements, and converted the building to 89 residential units. There is a live-in superintendent, 24-hr doormen and porters. This loft building is pet friendly, and there is a washer and dryer in each apartment. This beautifully restored cooperative building has been awarded the Lucy G. Moses Preservation Award from the New York Landmarks Conservancy for 2010, which recognizes outstanding preservation and restoration efforts. The re-emerging Financial District has many new restaurants and shops, and the new Fulton Street subway station; where most all subway lines converge, for easy access to points throughout Brooklyn and Manhattan, and the PATH train to New Jersey.
