Ficken's Warehouse
766 Grand Street
State and National Registers of Historic Places, 1984

Erected in 1910, by the German immigrant John H. Fickens who operated a stable and warehouse in the Junction section of the city. The designer was Ernest E. Quaiff, a local architect. This three-story Neoclassical (or second Renaissance) structure was the Bergen Station Post Office for fifty years.

The building is on a nearly triangular lot – like a slice of pizza with a bite out of the tip. The location is a hill with a street on each of the two long sides. The very grand main entrance – decked out with an arched portico, Doric columns, frieze, and a fanlight – fits smartly into the small end. Also present at either side of the entrance are two small windows topped by limestone keystones. Above the entrance is a large clock set in decorative stone.

Residential housing is the current use.
