From Luxury Listings NYC: Framed on the south by Grand Street and on the north by Broome Street, the triangular lot at 240 Centre Street is within a stones throw of Chinatown, Little Italy (or, what’s left of it), Tribeca, Soho, Nolita and the Lower East Side. Which is probably why it was chosen – back in 1909 – to be the site of the Hoppin and Koen-designed police building.
