Manhattan Landmarks- St. Mark’s Historic District and Extension

 St. Mark’s Historic District and Extension

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. Designated January 14, 1969 and extended June 19, 1984.
