Stuyvesant Fish House

21 Stuyvesant Street

The Venue

This building was once home to future Governor and New York Senator Hamilton Fish. Peter Stuyvesant built this federalist style house for his daughter as a wedding gift in about 1804. It was marked as a landmark by New York City in 1965 and as a National Historic Landmark in 1975 due to its prominence as one of the city’s earliest federalist style buildings and its connection to the famous Stuyvesant family. Currently the building is owned by Cooper Union and is the residence for the Cooper Union president.
