Notes
Survey number HABS NY-5675
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-355).
Significance: Joined together as a hotel in 1882, 203 and 204 Front Street were originally built at different times; the former most probably in 1816 and the latter in 1798 or 1799. Recently, the South Street Seaport Museum restored the two buildings following the 1882 alteration elevation by architect Th. Engelhardt. The front elevation shows granite pier shopfronts and Neo-Grec styled incised cast iron window lintels. The original Federal Style buildings were owned by grocers Peter G. Hart (203) and Philetus Havens (204). Today the buildings serve as a gallery and offices for the South Street Seaport Museum, a neighborhood of stores, galleries, and piers standing in close proximity to high rise buildings in Lower Manhattan.
