American Surety building features a rich neo-Renaissance decorative scheme that
incorporates Greek elements such as the
Ionic entrance colonnade and the severe
classical sculptural figures, designed by
J. Massey Rhind, at the third story.
The American Surety Building is a historic skyscraper located at 100 Broadway, NYC, opposite Trinity Church. It has been declared
a landmark as one of Manhattan's
most influential early skyscrapers.
The building was constructed 1894-1896 to designs by noted architect Bruce Price, and
was one of Manhattan's first buildings with
steel framing and curtain wall construction.
