Tweed Courthouse

Tweed Courthouse
52 Chambers St.
Manhattan, NY 10007
Lower Manhattan


The great legacy of infamous Tammany Hall leader William "Boss" Tweed (who used the building's construction to embezzle large sums of money from the city government), the Tweed Courthouse is a landmarked building and an architectural marvel. Seen in films like Kramer vs. Kramer and Gangs of New York, the three-and-a-half floor American Victorian–style structure, restored in 1999, features an octagonal rotunda and a skylight. The building is currently home to the Department of Education. Free tours of this neo-classical gem are offered weekly; reservations can be made online at or by calling 311 (212-NEW-YORK from outside the City).
