Schermerhorn Row in lower Manhattan, built in 1810-1812, is one of the most significant examples of early nineteenth-century commercial architecture remaining in the nation. In the 1970s, the State of New York acquired title to the property and planned to locate the New York State Maritime Museum there. The Schermerhorn Row Documentation Project was formulated to identify features that would be retained and restored during the development of the museum, as well as to record those elements that would be sacrificed. This publication is a summary of that documentation project.
