Description
Architect: William Schickel

- This building, originally built by Manhattanville College, was purchased along with the rest of the old Manhattanville campus by City College. In 1969, during a student rebellion, Finley was burned and the Aronow Theater within was heavily damaged. It was demolished in 1985.

- A small, underutilized one storey section of this building remained discreetly behind Aaron Davis Hall. It was the boiler plant, and was officially designated "Building 35" by CCNY. It was demolished for a new science building.

- A hill on the site of the building is in fact partially hollow; a glance down one of the few small holes on it reveals a drop of about ten feet. This is likely part of the subcellar.
