An Abandoned Palace in Downtown Manhattan

For over 70 years, an historic building at 5 Beekman Street has been shuttered from the public. The beautiful brick and terra cotta building, built in 1882, sports twin towers and a nine-story atrium with wrought iron ceilings and balconies. Scouting NY takes a rare tour of this strangely empty building in an area where every square foot of business or living space brings astronomical prices.

That one is called the "Bradbury Building" (bit of a sci-fi author cross-over there!)
