description

Summary

Significance: building #135 is composed of two buildings, a storehouse and an officer's quarters. The storehouse is the remaining one of two original storehouses that were the first buildings constructed at the New York Arsenal. The officer's quarters is also the remaining one of two quarters that were built after the two storehouses. The storehouse and quarters, now combined into one building, were the original core of the New York Arsenal. The officers quarters portion of the structure has well preserved interiors. The original storehouse portion of the building has been so modified that its historic character is minimal.
Unprocessed Field note material exists for this structure: FN-365, FN-367
Survey number: HABS NY-5715-6A
National Register of Historic Places NRIS Number: 85002435
