Peter Gansevoort

Gansevoort Street runs where old Fort Gansevoort, constructed for the War of 1812, was built. It was named for General Peter Gansevoort, one of Washington's officers.

Gansevoort was the grandfather of author Herman Melville, who worked on the docks here as a customs inspector in the later years of his life, believing that his work would be forgotten.

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Cunningham ("The Hours") has written that Gansevoort "is probably the only street in Manhattan, and maybe in the world, where you could procure, in one easy trip, a side of beef and a 1970's sectional sofa in pristine condition."

One legacy of the Meat Packing District is its sidewalk overhangs, which may be maintained by whatever businesses replace them. They do provide neeed shade in this tree-baren area especially on hot summer days. This building was built 1880-81 by John Glass Jr.

North side of Gansevoort west of Greenwich Street. The lettering on the side of the building, at least the part I can make out, says "clam chowder," "boullion" and New England buiscuit."
