About Jacob K. Javits Federal Building
Jacob K. Javits Federal Office Building at 26 Federal Plaza in the Civic Center, Manhattan, New York City is a forty-plus story structure which houses many federal government agencies, including the FBI's New York City field office. The federal building falls under the jurisdiction of the United States Federal Protective Service for any and all law enforcement and protection issues. Because the New York City district field office of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is located in the building, it is a well-known location among the city's immigrant communities. Every business day, immigrants requiring USCIS services can be seen lining up in the morning along Worth Street to go through the security checkpoint and enter the building. The building is named for influential U.S. senator from New York Jacob K. Javits.
