One Front Street

The building at One Front Street sits at the junction of Front and Old Fulton Street in the Dumbo (Fulton Ferry) historic waterfront district of Brooklyn. This beautiful cast-iron Renaissance palazzo built in 1869, was originally the Long Island Safe Deposit Company. From the American Institute of Architects Guide to New York City: "This monumental bank overshadowed its older neighbors in the prosperous post-Civil War era. The Brooklyn Bridge's diversion of commuting traffic after 1883 forced the bank to close its doors in 1891." Like many other structures in the neighborhood, the Brooklyn Bridge frames the architecture and provides an inspiring, quintessential NYC backdrop ...

Great photo!

Historical... classic... nice composition.

I'm sorry I never visited Dumbo... I never knew about it when I lived in NYC.

It is one of the most atmospheric areas of NYC - 2 Bridges, the East River, views of Manhattan, beautiful architecture.

You can't lose doing photography in Dumbo. I do find however, that images lose quite a bit when viewed with browsers and quality also varies with monitor quality and amount of ambient lighting.
