- Upscale 2x7680x6118
Significance: Built at the corner termination of a three store row on Peck Slip for Jasper Ward in 1807, this Federal style building stood next to one of the most important and longest lasting slips in New York City. Like most of the other seaport buildings, 45 Peck Slip became part of the fish market in the late 19th century. In 1973, Con Ed was going to demolish the building to make way for a new transformer station but Con Ed agreed to build around the vacant store instead.
