55 Broad St
— Exploring Lower Manhattan —This 1960s American office building has been ripped apart and rewired with a 21st-century communications infrastructure that can instantly connect its tenants with sites around the world. Famous in the 1980s as the high finance offices of investment bankers Drexel Burnham Lambert, 55 Broad Street was reborn in 1996 as the Downtown headquarters of Silicon Alley - the dazzlingly hip computer / new media industry stretching along Broadway from 23rd Street down through the financial district.
