Watch layers of history literally peeling back to reveal secrets of this 19th century cast-iron building, spotlighting surprises like cart tracks in the basement, historic construction methods, and the machinery of an early elevator.
This special virtual tour is led by South Street Seaport Museum President and CEO Capt. Jonathan Boulware showing and telling the process of renovating the historic Thomson & Co., at 215-213 Water Street, in the heart of the South Street Seaport Historic District.
213-215 Water Street was built in 1868 for A.A. Thomson & Co. A transcription error led to the building being referred to as “Thompson Warehouse” in the past. Click here for more details.
