Unlike some of its neighbors, shortly after a group of lawyers and law students founded the Association of the Bar of the City of New York, they moved into this address...and stayed. That was in 1896. Today, the organization's name has been slightly altered, but its mission remains somewhat the same. Members "actively engage in social issues," and have continuously fought for human rights both here and abroad, offering pro bono legal services when necessary. Designed in 1894 by architect Cyrus L. W. Eidlitz, this home of the New York City Bar Association is a true architectural gem. The design is neoclassical, the material is limestone. As per usual for this block, the building is a NYC Landmark and on the National Register of Historic Places. Really, words and photographs do not do the building justice.
