There is a very grand looking building just north of chinatown (I guess it's in Soho actually) which is the former police headquarters building, now converted to apartments. I don't have a shot with the whole building, but it is really quite fancy looking. Some very lucky (and rich!) people live there now. Here is what I read about it on nyc-architecture.com:
Old Police Headquarters Building, 240 Centre Street (taking up the entire block between Grand and Broome). Designed by the firm of Hoppin & Koen in an exuberant Edwardian Baroque style, it opened in 1909. The NY Police Dept. moved out in 1973 and the building was converted to luxury condominiums in 1987. There are 55 apartments on six floors.
