Albert Sprague Bard
December 19, 1866 - March 25, 1963
25 Broad Street, originally the
Broad Exchange Building

For over 60 years, from 1901 to 1963, Albert S. Bard practiced law and pursued his civic activities from his office here. He was a founder of the Citizen's Union, an early President of the Municipal Art Society, and an officer of the Fine Arts Federation. Bard was a national authority on "aesthetic regulation," and a leader in early NYC preservation efforts He was the author, and leading advocate for the "Bard Act," the ground-breaking NY State legislation passed in Albany in 1956, which provided NYC the legal authority to adopt, in 1965, its Landmarks Law. The NYC Law set the standard for the nation, and is responsible for the protection of the architectural and historical treasures of NYC, including this building, once the city's largest office building.
