The reconstruction of the landmarked Tin Building is making steady progress in Manhattan’s South Street Seaport District. The original structure, made mostly of a wooden frame featuring an exterior of corrugated metal sheets, suffered a major fire in 1995 and later weathered extensive flood damage from Hurricane Sandy in 2012. After approvals from the city’s Landmark Preservation Commission in 2016, the structure was carefully dismantled and is now being rebuilt 33 feet away from its original location, directly to the west of Pier 17.
