Forgotten NY was the first recipient of the Outstanding NYC Website award by the Guides Association of NYC in March 2015! Forgotten New York is a program of the Greater Astoria Historical Society, a non-profit organization supported by the Long Island City community. Fulton Street, which runs in Lower Manhattan from Church Street east to theSouth Street Seaport, is a crazy quilt of mom and pop businesses, souvenir tourist traps, historic cast iron and late 19th Century buildings and some of the weirdest architectural juxtapositioning you’ve ever seen.
Fulton is the main street of the South Street Seaport Historic District, which in your webmaster’s opinion is just a little too affected and lays it on a bit thick, but it must be remembered that back in 1983 it was built mainly for the tourist trade. The building along the right side of the picture looks older than it is; it was built in the early 1980s as a representation of the Bogardus Building, which was stolen. The Ambrose is named for Ambrose Channel, the southern entrance to NY harbor, where it was stationed in its early years.
The South Street Historic District‘s distinctive lampposts are close replicas of those that existed here in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Narrow Pearl Street, one of the longest streets in lower Manhattan (except for Broadway) crosses Fulton Street where there was once an el station: the 2nd-3rd Avenue El ran up Pearl Street on its way to Chatham Square and then the Bowery and 3rd Avenue.
The triangle formed by Gold and Fulton Streets is called John Delury Senior Plaza, after the longtime labor leader of the Uniformed Sanitationmen’s Association. Robert Fulton’s steamboat, the Clermont, which made its maiden voyage in 1807, is featured on the IRT platform in 4 landmarked ornate plaques made in 1905 by Rockwood Pottery. In the corridor that connects the IRT platform (4, 5) at Fulton Street to the BMT (J, M, Z) and IND (A, C) are six large terra cotta designs that were not originally in the station, but seem to be very much of a piece with it. Gold Street, seen here near its intersection with Fulton, gives you a good idea of the narrowness of the streets in the area; they were originally built for horse and oxcarts and foot traffic, not cars. The spectacular Excelsior Power Company Building cast iron sign has been hidden here on 33 Gold Street since 1888. Above and below: The Royal Insurance Company Building on the northeast corner of William and Fulton dates to 1927.
Similar interlocking letters are just across the street on William on the Fidelity and Deposit Building along with a close-up view of Your Webmaster’s thumb. Nassau Street, a pedestrian walkway during the week, has several classics dating back to several eras.
The advertisers would prefer you to look at the billboard, but instead, here’s another initial at 83 Nassau Street. Architecture in the late 1800s, and especially cast iron architecture, is renowned for its detail.
Note the unironic patriotic depiction. In the mid-1800s, and for that matter, on into the 1960s, for better or for worse, the use of patriotic images showing heroes of the past was an accepted, perhaps even expected, part of architecture. Ever-present scaffolding obscures intricate detailing at 127 Fulton Street, the Keuffel & Esser Building, built in 1893. Let’s leave Fulton for a moment and go a block south to Broadway and John Street where we find the 1889 Corbin Building, designed by Francis Kimball, renowned for his decorative use of terra cotta. Fulton Street is shorter than it used to be. The stretch between Church and West Streets was closed so that the World Trade Center could be constructed on what was formerly Radio Row and the Washington Market. Park Row, seen here looking south to Broadway, runs northeast from Broadway just north of Fulton Street and connects it with the Bowery and the East Side.
BP could be fined up to $18 billion for Gulf spill—enough to fix broken lives and deformed crabs? Sarah Schmidt has written about solar power for the New York Sun, vegetables for Plenty, and old houses for This Old House, as well as a number of other topics for the New York Times, New York magazine, Budget Living, and Cookie. Hunter has partnered with the NYC Department of Transportation to install 8 "ribbon-style" bicycle racks on the sidewalks just outside of our East Harlem campus.


In its desire to encourage bicycle ridership in New York City, the DOT's CityRacks Program provides and installs bike racks at various properties that request them, free of charge. The HCSC is an outgrowth of PlaNYC 2030, as is Hunter's participation in the "30 in 10" Challenge. Have you ever wondered how many greenhouse gas emissions your household's activities generate?

Even its original incarnation, the Fulton Fish Market, will soon be decamping to the Bronx and the area’s bracing fishy odor will soon be just a memory. Yes, stolen: a warehouse built by cast-iron architecture pioneer James Bogardus at Washington and Murray Streets in Washington Market on the Lower West Side was taken down during construction of the World trade Center and was actually stolen for scrap iron. Since 1968, the Ambrose has been docked at the Seaport and has been a floating museum since then.
Looming at the rear is the third tallest building in NYC, 66-story American International Bldg. When the plaques were placed here the voyage was nearing its centennial; now it’s approaching its 200th anniversary! Twenty years earlier, James Rumsey and John Fitch had each run steamboats on the Potomac and Delaware Rivers respectively. They were produced in the same era (1915) and originally could be found in the Maritime Grill in the McAlpin Hotel in Herald Square. The street is named for long-since leveled Golden Hill, which was in turn named for the color of a wheat grown in the area.
At left, the Fulton Building (1891) is classified as a Renaissance Revival building with brick, limestone and terra cotta; just across the street, at right, is the Bennett Building, named for James Gordon Bennett, owner of the New York Herald, built by Arthur Gilman in 1872 with the upper 4 floors added in 1892.
Actually by some accounts, this building was built in the 1860s by the cast iron granddaddy, James Bogardus. Even in a wired society like this, offices still use basic things like staples, rubber stamps and paper products. Architects DeLemos and Cordes used this as a dry run for their later confections, the Siegel-Cooper and Macy’s department store buildings.
At right are several historical artifacts all rolled into one: an angular 1970s modern front was grafted onto what looks like an 1890s Beaux-Arts building!
Paul’s Chapel, on Broadway between Fulton and Vesey, survived the 2001 terrorist attack with barely a scratch.
Park Row is one of Manhattan’s oldest roads and first shows up in official documents and maps as early as 1671!

Many buildings along South Street were hotels and flops, and Mitchell gives an indelible description of #4 Fulton when it was one such hotel in the mid-20th Century. He first had to fill in the land; Front Street, as its name implies, was the approximate original shoreline. Both Manhattan and Brooklyn’s Fulton Streets are named for steamship and submarine pioneer Robert Fulton.
And, Fulton’s biographer, Cadwallader Colden, had Fulton name his steamboat the Clermont even though Fulton himself apparently never called it anything but North River Steam Boat! Of the three, only the one with Maguire’s Ale House on the ground floor has been relatively unaltered.
In the 1990s, a compromise of sorts was reached and the very short part of Ryders that ran to Gold street was renamed Edens, while the other part of the dogleg kept Ryders. Peering around the scaffolding will let you see the cast-iron detailing, renderings of drafting implements and for some reason, a winged wheel. Along with the Bowery it functioned as the first Boston Post Road and wound irregularly on the East Side till it crossed the Harlem river by ferry and connected to a network of roads leading to Boston. The United States Environmental Protection Agency has designed a Personal Emissions Calculator and an Automobile Emissions Calculator that are easy to use, and can offer insight into ways to reduce your carbon footprint and conserve energy and resources.
There’s plenty of historic gems in the area that are overlooked by both dyed in the wool NYers and tourists, and we intend to do an entire Forgotten page on them eventually. The original Fulton Ferry, which ran between Manhattan and Brooklyn’s Fulton Streets, began to bring foot traffic beginning in 1814 and in that year, the first storefronts appeared on Schermerhorn Row.
The loss of the great skyscraper observation decks is one of the unfortunate occurrences of our age. The building is now occupied by a jewelry shop and tanning salon but its former business, a copy shop, still has a sign.
Robin Nagle, the New York City Department of Sanitation’s anthropologist-in-residence, that’s who. The mansard roof and dormer windows near South Street were added in the 1860s; many additions and amendations have been done over the years. Nagle first worked with the department while researching a book on the city’s sanitation workers (or "san men"). When she heard that the department supported an artist-in-residence, it dawned on her that she could play a similar role as an anthropologist, so she convinced the higher-ups to create the job for her (it probably wasn’t that hard, since she doesn’t earn a salary). Now she’s developing the city’s first sanitation museum, organizing the department’s archives, and spear-heading a sanitation oral history project.
Sarah Schmidt caught up with Nagle for a lively discussion about the history of garbage in one of the world's largest cities, where 25,000 tons are disposed of every day. Going back 100, 150 years, American cities were disgusting -- and New York City was notorious as the filthiest and stinkiest. And all of this filth exacerbated a public health crisis -- people were dying of diseases like typhus, cholera, yellow fever, things that spread more easily in neighborhoods where the streets were dirtier. A cholera epidemic in the 1830’s killed 3,515 people, which was roughly12 percent of the population at the time.
