The Landmarks Preservation Commission designated four new individual landmarks yesterday, most notably the original headquarters of Tammany Hall on Union Square East. The neo-Georgian-style building, which sits at 100 East 17th Street, was completed in 1929 and served as the base of operations for the famously corrupt political machine, although not during their best years. It is now a movie theatre.
Also designated were 339 Grand Street House, a 1833 Federal-style row house constructed by John Jacob Astor, and 39 and 41 Worth Street, two cast-iron store-and-loft buildings constructed in 1866 and 1865 respectively. The co-op board at 39 Worth Street had previously argued against the designation, claiming that it would make upkeep of the building too difficult.
