My pleasure as always swarter: The New York directory for 1786, illustrated with a plan of the city, also changes in the names of streets. New York, NY, USA: H.J. Sachs & Company, 1905.

Thanks for the pewtersmiths wev; those gentleman never crossed my mind.

There's also Thomas Biggs, instrument maker, 60 facing Beekman's slip if he should happen to be of interest.
