170-176 John Street is a commercial building erected in 1840[2] facing Burling Slip (now filled in) on John Street along the East River in the Financial District of Lower Manhattan. It is one of possibly two surviving granite Greek Revival buildings in all of New York.[3]

It was originally known as the Hickson W. Field building; later, it was used as a ship chandlery and known as the Baker, Carver & Morrell Building.[4] It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1971.

In 1982, the architects Buttrick White & Burtis added a floor to the building, and converted it to residential use.
