About the U.S. Appraisers Building
The United States Immigration Station and Appraisers Stores (now commonly called the Appraisers Building) is a sixteen-story landmark completed in 1944. The building has been associated with events that have made a significant contribution to the broad patterns of American history. It continues to house the U.S. departments, immigration and customs agencies of the Federal government, that it opened its doors to in 1944. Since the building is nearing its 50 years of age, it is now being reviewed as a candidate for the National Register. Significant historic interior features of the building include the first floor lobby, ornamented with patterned, salmon-colored terrazzo flooring; Montana travertine wall cladding; bronze elevator doors with fretwork details; and additional decorative bronze elements. The finishes of the elevator lobbies on the upper floors are more modest and include terrazzo flooring and cream-colored ceramic tile. The corridors also have terrazzo flooring, though with painted plaster walls and ceilings.
