35 Cooper Square

35 Cooper Square was one of the oldest buildings on the Bowery and in the East Village. After the City refused to landmark it, it was demolished by a developer in 2011. The ca. 1825 house just south of East 6th Street was one of a shrinking number of surviving federal-era houses in Lower Manhattan with an exceptional cultural history stretching from the estate of Peter Stuyvesant to the Beat Poets.
