In December, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved a development next to the Merchant’s House
that will destroy one of New York’s first landmarks, a family home built in 1832 that remains intact, inside and out.

It is critical that the Adams Administration and its Buildings Department step in to protect this
vital and irreplaceable part of New York’s history before it is gone … forever.


Please take 30 seconds to email the Adams Administration urging them to SAVE the Merchant’s House.

Thank you for your support!

At particular risk is our original – and landmarked – 1832 ornate ornamental plasterwork (considered the finest surviving from the period) as well as the plaster walls and ceilings. Vibrations from construction next door could cause it literally to come crumbling down.
