Imagine that you’re eating your leftover chicken dinner in the same place where Wild Turkey bourbon was stored, or where New Yorkers went to get their first telephones in the early 20th century.
If you live in one of New York City’s landmarked buildings — of which there are more than 1,000, according to the real estate listings site StreetEasy — your domestic routine takes place in the setting of a piece of New York history.
From the original New York Telephone Company Building to the former Wild Turkey warehouse and a bank that opened in 1913, here are some of the city’s most beautiful and unique landmarked buildings that you can live in:
Brooklyn Trust Company Building
Austin Nichols House
The Potter Building
