1. Fulton Fish Waist - 142 Beekman Street Marker
Inscription.  One of the district's most sophisticated architectural treasures, No. 142 Beekman (also known as 211 Front Street) was designed by George B. Post—later architect of the New York Stock Exchange—for a descendent of Peter Schermerhorn. The building's cockleshell cornice, starfish tie-rod ends, and vigorously modeled terracotta keystones of fantastic fish firmly place the building in its Fulton Fish Market setting.
 
Erected by South Street Seaport Historic District.
