New York Life Insurance Building information
This landmark building opened in 1890 to house the New York Life Insurance Company (hence the eagles), but soon passed to luxury furnishing purveyor Metz & Co. Functionalist designer/architect Gerrit Rietveld added the top-floor cupola in 1930. In 2012, American retailer Abercrombie & Fitch took over the building, while Metz & Co relocated to smaller premises at Leidsestraat 1–3.
