The American Express Building, also known as 65 Broadway, is a building between Morris and Rector Streets in the Financial District of Manhattan, New York City. It was built in 1914-1917 and was designed by James L. Aspinwall of the firm of Renwick, Aspinwall & Tucker in the Neoclassical style. The 21-story building goes through to Trinity Place, and was the headquarters of American Express until 1975.[2] The building is now sometimes called the Standard & Poors Building, but should not be confused with another building using that name at 25 Broadway. This Class A office building has 10 elevators, is LEED-certified, and qualifies for the Lower Manhattan Energy Program.[3]

The New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission designated the concrete and steel-frame building a New York City landmark in December 1995.[4]
