Officially, this building is the Old New York County Courthouse and it took twenty years to complete (1858-78). It is nicknamed for the cheif grafter, William Marcy "Boss" Tweed, whose ring made off with millions in construction costs. Tweed was neither Irish nor Catholic, but during his time he controlled Tammany Hall, the Democratic, primarialy Irish political club notorious for corruption. And although tweed was thrown in jail 1871-72 as a result of testimony from an Irish whistle blower, the rampant corrpution did not halt.

The historic research contained in this Open Green Map is from the book: "Six Heritage Tours of the Lower East Side" by Ruth Limmer, in collaboration with NYC's Lower East Side Tenement Museum.
