In 1866, New York City sold the southern tip of City Hall Park to the Federal government. In 1870, construction began on the building that would become known as the Federal Post Office. The ornate four-story structure was designed in the French Second Empire style. The building's broad north façade faced City Hall, while the sides were angled to form a triangle that followed the contours of Park Row and Broadway.
