20 Coenties Slip / 41 Front St, and why it shouldn’t be there… (for the sim project).
After some long, in-depth and intense research, i’ve realized these two buildings were demolished sometime around 1925 for the expansion of The Seamens Church Institute building. See that massive building in this photo? That’s the Seamens Church Institute. 20 Coenties Slip / 41 Front St. are the two buildings directly behind it (center of the photo).
Now, as i’m fully aware that these buildings were demolished post 1925… i also don’t particularly see a reason the Seamens Church Institute building needs…to take up the entire block. With this in mind, i’ve decided to incorporate these 2 buildings into the sim project.
A closer, zoomed in view:
Now, both these photos are taken in 1925, with the description, “The old storefronts and warehouses at 41-53 Front Street (Coenties Slip & Front Street) to be razed for the extension of the Seamen’s Church Institute.” With that in mind, i will be keeping these stores fronts / warehouse spaces as part of the sim design for the project.
