The St. Mark’s historic district, once part of Governor Peter Stuyvesant’s 17th-century farm, was subdivided and partly developed by his great-grandson. St. Mark’s-Church-in-the-Bowery, begun in 1795, is the oldest site of worship in Manhattan. The home of Nicholas William Stuyvesant also dates to 1795. The Stuyvesant-Fish House, constructed in 1803-1804, is one of the city’s grandest Federal residences. Renwick Triangle, a collection brownstone-trimmed, brick Anglo-Italianate buildings from 1861 are attributed to James Renwick, Jr.

“I don’t know what the City would be without HDC. [They] testified before LPC time after time and helped us focus on the right issues. We would not be an historic district without HDC! ”

“Use HDC as a resource because they know what they are doing and can offer advice on how to go about creating a district from every front: architectural, political, LPC, and the media. I had floundered prior to my involvement with this invaluable organization.”

“HDC provided guidance and shared information during that process—we knew which Council members were going one way or another and we changed a few minds. I don’t think NoHo would have had as cohesive a district had it not been for HDC’s aid.”

“I remember Richard saying at a meeting, we have someone here from HDC, Nadezhda Williams, Director of Preservation and Research, to help us. She said to us, ‘You are not the only ones going through this.’ HDC included us in an enormous community”
