Notes
Survey number HABS NY-6013
Significance: The South Street Seaport declined at the end of the 19th century and the area shifted to greater industrial and office use. The William J. Matheson Building represents this trend in the city's history. Built in 1897, the ten-story office building replaced two earlier structures and in 1919, the three early 19th century structures at 145-149 John Street were remodeled and incorporated into the plan of the larger building.
