The New York City Landmarks Commission report, Tribeca North Historic District Designation Report, December, 1992, has the following on 37 Vestry St., "37 Vestry Street; Tax map block/lot 219/16; date 1882-83 [NB 1269-1882]; architect: George W. DaCunha; Owner William Menck; Type Warehouse; Style Commercial derived from German Rundbogenstil; masonry load bearing walls; 6 stories ... William and Charles Menck were in the storage business, located in 1840 at 395-397 Greenwich Street, a building erected by Henry J. Meyer (in what is now the Tribeca West Historic District); after constructing this warehouse in 1882, William Menck purchased the adjacent one at 39 Vestry Street. The storage firm of Baker & Williams, which owned other warehouses on the block, later used this building as well. During the 1920s it was leased along with No. 39, by the Weinberg & Posner Engineering Company, the Russian-American Warehouse & Shipping Company, Inc., and the Marbaud Corporation. In 1937 the building was joined internally with 35 Vestry by the J. Cane & Sons baker's supply firm for use as a storage warehouse. During the 1960s Nat Brown's Export Packers and Warehousing business was in the building. There are remnants of the painted signage of 'Regina Products,' '__ & Schueller, Trucking Corp.,' and 'Datz Moving and Storage Corp. Warehouse' on the facade."
