130 Beekman Street
Stabilization and conservation work on damage incurred October 29, 2012 by Hurricane Sandy at 130 Beekman Street, an assemblage of three early turn of the 19th century masonry mercantile buildings. Erected in 1827, 231 Water Street still features its fluted cast iron columns with palmetta capitals at the ground floor. Its pitched roof, narrow lot and Flemish bond make it a fine example of the Seaport’s “counting house” style, which originated in English seaport cities. The buildings were originally occupied by ship chandlers, sail makers and merchants.
