    The Custom House – home to the National Museum of the American Indian – completed in 1907 and designed by Cass Gilbert, is considered one of the four most important Federal properties in the nation.

  • Time Out New York on 06/27/13

    This museum was the HQ for New York’s customs offices until 1971. It was also ground zero for the Stamp Act Riots in 1765, as Fort Amsterdam, when U.S. and British soldiers used it as a stronghold.

  • The Corcoran Group on 02/17/12

    One of the more fascinating museums in NYC – situated in the old US Customs House – where admission is FREE everyday and it’s rarely crowded.
