The oldest operating elevators in the U.S. are direct plunger elevators. They are located at 34 Gramercy Park, in New York City's earliest cooperative apartment house. The elevators were installed by Otis Elevator back in 1883 and still retain most of the original equipment first used in the nine-story building. A cable runs through the top of the cab and out the bottom and controls a valve in the basement that regulates the flow between the underground cylinder and a water tower at the top of the building.
