description/

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 nyc.gov or by calling 311 (212-NEW-YORK from outside the City).
