The History of 121 Charles Street
With Amanda Davis, Village Preservation’s Director of Preservation and Research
Known as ‘Cobble Court’ or ‘The Goodnight Moon House’, the quirky wooden home at 121 Charles Street has captivated generations of Villagers and visitors alike. The house, reported to be over 200 years old, faced the wrecking ball in Yorkville before two remarkable people fought to save and move it to the Village in 1967.
As part of the Landmarks50 celebrations, join Amanda Davis, Village Preservation’s Director of Preservation and Research, as she pieces together the incredible history of “the little house that could.”
This program is part of NYC Landmarks50 Alliance, the multi-year celebration of the 50th anniversary of New York City’s Landmarks Law.
