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.
