The first of four houses built by Nicholas William Stuyvesant in the 1800s, 35 Cooper is one of the oldest buildings left standing on the Bowery. “It was build in 1825,” Jones said. “The New York City Landmark’s Commission just dismissed out of hand that it ought to be saved, they said it had been altered. But if you look at the picture, it’s the third from the left here, it hasn’t been at all.” “If you were almost 200 years old, you’d be altered a bit too,” Richards chimed in.
