52 Broadway, formerly known as the Exchange Court Building or Chemical Bank Building, is a high-rise building on Broadway and Exchange Place in the Financial District of Lower Manhattan, New York City. The building was originally built with 12 floors in 1898 by architects Clinton & Russell, but it was gutted and stripped of its entire facade in 1980-1982 by Emery Roth & Sons. It is now 221.5 feet (67.5 m) high with 20 floors.[1]


In September 1903, the Consolidated National Bank took out a five-year lease on around 2,500 square feet of ground floor at the Exchange Court Building, which was located at the corner of Broadway and Exchange Place.[2]

The naval architectural firm Gielow & Orr had their headquarters in the building in the early 20th century.[3] The United Federation of Teachers currently has its headquarters in the building.[4]
