The Petersfield

This is a building at the corner of 4th Avenue and 12th Street; the awning calls it The Petersfield, but the stone over the entrance calls it the Fish Building. The Fishes were a branch of the Stuyvesant family, and Petersfield was the Stuyvesant family estate--I presume there's a connection.
