10. Lost Gillender Building at Place St Michel
This is the Gillender Building, a 20-story building that once stood at Nassau and Wall Street. The building that replaced it is now 14 Wall Street but the original slender building is one of the shortest-lived buildings in New York City, lasting only 13 years. Here it sits at Place St Michel near the church of Saint Sulpice (familiar in pop culture for being featured in The Da Vinci Code.
