88 Greenwich Street, also known as the Greenwich Club Residences and previously as 19 Rector Street, is a building on the south side of Rector Street between Greenwich and Washington Streets in the Financial District of Manhattan in New York City. Built in 1929–30, the 37-story building was designed by Lafayette A. Goldstone and Alexander Zamshnick in the Art Deco style.

An entrance to the New York City Subway's Rector Street station was in the basement of the building, and opened in 1931. This entrance had closed by 1941.

88 Greenwich Street was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2002. The building was renovated into residential condominium use in 2006. In 2012, the building was affected by flooding from Hurricane Sandy. Three million cubic feet of salt water entered the basement of the building, causing significant damage. During the flooding, water dislodged an oil tank, which cracked after hitting a ceiling beam.
