Designed by Kirby, Petit & Green, Architects in a neo-Classical Style and constructed in 1908 with a granite and smooth ashlar stone facade. The American Bank Note Company was one of America’s most prominent producers of bank notes, stamps, stock certificates and letters of credit. They reinforced their powerful position to the public by constructing a low-rise building in the skyscraper dominated Financial District.
