Place Matters Profile

In addition to its important associations with political and labor union history (it also served as the headquarters for the International Ladies Garment Workers Union), this building is notable architecturally. Tammany made a conscious effort to evoke the image of Federal Hall, where George Washington took the oath of office as the first President of the United States.
