The streetscape shown above is a continuation of a view of the east side of Market Street from the Lush-Brinkerhoff house north to Maiden Lane about 1805. North from the Lush-Brinkerhoff house was the home of John Meads; then the house of Martin Beekman; then the house of John Jacob Lansing; the tall building belonged to Barent Bleecker; the old Dutch-style building next door was occupied by General John H. Wendell. The double house and offices of Stephen Lush and his father-in-law, Dr. Samuel Stringer were bounded by the homes of Andrew Brown, Dudley Walsh, and baker Sanders Lansing. The large home partially obscured by the tree belonged to Chancellor John Lansing. This streetscape is further described in an online transcription.
