The Canal Street Station post office in downtown Manhattan was constructed with federal Treasury Department funds in 1937. It was designed by architect Alan Balch Mills.  The  two story building in the Moderne Style is clad in terra cotta panels,  with a black base, buff walls and a silvery frieze along the top.  A Treasury Section of Fine Arts-funded sculpture was installed in the post office lobby in 1938.

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.
