Locate Your Business in the Civic Center Neighborhood

The Civic Center is an appealing location for any business, given its prominent position in Lower Manhattan. Its convenience to the area’s municipal buildings and courthouses is a reason many law firms choose to locate in the area. It is also a good option for financial firms who desire to be near the Financial District. The Civic Center is also a popular location for non-profit businesses and doctor’s offices. Some of the best known office buildings in the area include the Woolworth Building, one of the oldest and tallest skyscrapers in NYC, which is also known as the “Cathedral of Commerce” and the Park Row Building, which was originally part of Newspaper Row and now houses the offices of the Associated Press.

Significant Municipal and Government Buildings in the Civic Center

The centerpiece of the Civic Center is New York City Hall. The building has been designated a National Historic Landmark and features a dramatic interior rotunda. Other significant buildings in the area include One Police Plaza, the headquarters of the New York City Police Department; the Manhattan Municipal Building, a 40-story Beaux-Arts style structure designed by McKim, Mead & White to house government offices; Tweed Courthouse, named for the infamous Boss Tweed and now home to the Department of Education; and the Jacob K. Javits Federal Building, a 40-story modern structure that houses government offices, including the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Transportation Options Include Many Major Subway Lines

The Civic Center is served by many subway options, including the A, C, E, J, M, N, R, Z, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 trains. Nearly every major subway line converges in the area. It also provides easy access to the Brooklyn Bridge, Manhattan Bridge, West Side Highway and FDR for those who commute by car, and ferry service to New Jersey and Staten Island.
