New York Life Insurance Company Building

New York Life Insurance Company Building
Location: 346 Lower Broadway, between Leonard Street and Worth Street
Date built: 1893

White enlarged and redesigned an insurance company's headquarters by adding eight stories to the front and a 12-story extension in the back. The entire structure was topped by a massive clock tower, which supported a sculpture by Philip Martiny, White's collaborator on the St. Paul's Church renovation.
