The LTV Squad, a group dedicated to “documenting the forgotten underside of New York,” has a post about sneaking into the landmark Offerman Building on Fulton Street. As the post notes, there’s not much to see on the inside of the unused building aside from disrepairâ€”like the rotting ceiling beams shown aboveâ€”though the view from the roof is pretty great. The writer of the post says the building was best known as home to Martin’s Department Store until 1979, and in “recent times it has contained unrenovated, sealed floors, along with offices occupied by job agencies and the MTA adjudication Bureau – which has since relocated just a block away.”
