This 5-story, 57-foot-wide institutional building currently home to The New York Genealogical and Biographical Society. Originally designed and built specifically for the G&B's use in 1929, it consists of a large ornate theatre on the ground floor with all the original detail and a full balcony. The second and third floors are both primarily large meeting/reception areas with high ceilings and hardwood floors; both can be reconfigured for different uses. The top floor and mezzanine are dedicated to a sprawling library with high ceilings and lavish detail. This prime and very rare building would be ideal for a museum, school, consulate, embassy, religious organization, foundation, bank, commercial user or even a single-family home.  Click here to view full listing.
