Designate 35 Cooper Square a NYC landmark

1,790 Signatures Goal: 5,000

We, the undersigned, urge the Landmarks Preservation Commission to designate 35 Cooper Square as a NYC landmark. It is one of the oldest Federal-style houses left on the Bowery, and the oldest building on Cooper Square. In addition to its architectural significance, its important historical and cultural associations range from a direct descendant of Peter Stuyvesant to the building's much later habitation by Diane DiPrima, the most influential woman of the Beat Generation. This much-beloved little building has been both a significant participant and a surviving witness to New York City history for almost 200 years! Under the stipulations of the Landmarks Law, it qualifies on architectural, historical, and cultural criteria for designation as a NYC individual landmark. Losing this house would be a significant loss to the history of the East Village for both cultural and historical reasons.

    There way too much history at 35 Cooper Square to be lost if they knock it down. All this progress building is destroying all of the history of NYC. Save 35 Cooper Square and make it a landmark. I know I have here in Maine.
