Battery Maritime Building

Located at the southern tip of Manhattan Island, cheek-and-jowl with the spiffy and ultramodern Staten Island Ferry terminal, the Battery-Maritime Building is a true throwback, renovated and rejuvenated but not redesigned since its construction in 1909.

Located at the southern tip of Manhattan Island, cheek-and-jowl with the spiffy and ultramodern Staten Island Ferry terminal, the Battery-Maritime Building is a true throwback, renovated and rejuvenated but not redesigned since its construction in 1909. Then, the building connected the city's thousands of ferry commuters to the elevated subway lines that terminated at South Ferry, a beautiful Beaux-Arts welcome to the bustling city built around an enormous second-floor waiting room flooded with natural light. Today, after a long renovation, the building is once again impressive, but sits in a kind of development limbo. In the summers, the sporadic ferry to Governor's Island departs from here, and the BMB may continue to serve that function once the Island is redeveloped in the next decade. In the meantime, the city has called for proposals to rework the building's interior, with public calls for high-end residences and an upscale food market echoing the loudest.
