New York County Courthouse (Tweed Courthouse)

New York County Courthouse (Tweed Courthouse)

Civic Center, Manhattan

The Tweed Courthouse, although associated by name and history with one of New York's most notoriously corrupt city governments, is architecturally one of the city's grandest and most important civic monuments. Built over a period of twenty years, it is the product of two of New York's most prominent architects, John Kellum and Leopold Eidlitz, and of two of the most disparate 19th-century architectural movements, the mid-century commercial ltalianate, and the later highly theoretical Victorian medievalism.

As conceived by Kellum the courthouse was a grand Italianate CIVIC monument, modeled both on English precedents and on the United States Capitol, with details developed in the 1850s and 1860s for New York's commercial buildings. Eidlitz's additions, comprising the southern wing and several basic alterations to Kellum's rotunda, reflect an opposing architectural philosophy: an American version of organic architecture, expressed through medieval forms, of which Eidlitz was New York's most distinguished theorist. The Tweed Courthouse is one of the few and one of the best of both types in a large institutional building, and although the architects' approaches were antithetical, they combined in the courthouse to form an overwhelmingly grand and rich public building.

Besides City Hall, the Tweed Courthouse is the only survivor of the man) important civic buildings that once stood in City Hall Park. One hundred years after its completion, the Tweed stands as one of the city's finest civic monuments.

The Courthouse rests on a low granIte bas,e. Above the bas~. the brick walls are .clad in smooth-faced marble ashlar, purchased from the Sheffield and Eastchester quarries, though the rear wing is faced in another type of marble. lt is possible that other quarries might have been used as well, but no documentation has been found.

The exterior of the building is remarkably intact. The carved stone ornament--pedJ.Jllent., foliated brackets, pilasters--are weathered, but complete. The fine Corinthian entablature is unchanged. The major and most unsympathetic alteration was the removal of the monumental stairway in 1942, to permit the widening of Chambers Street.

Two-over-two windows with a modest architrave trim are set into the rusticated first floor of the bays flanking the monumental entrance in the main block. Above the base the upper floor windows are separated by pilasters with molded capitals which have a prominent egg-and-dart echinus. Eyebrow casement windows pierce the frieze.

There are two, one-and-one-half story high rusticated stone boxes attached to the window closest to the center in each bay. They match the stone and rustication on the facade and might be original. They are open on the top and were perhaps used for ventilation. 'he ornament is intact and original on these bays.

The two, three-window-wide end wings project the depth of one window from the center bays. The second floor windows are similar to, but more elaborate than, the windows in the main block. Arched pediments and balustraded aprons set them apart. The trim is original and intact.

The main facade is topped by a Corinthian entablature composed of an architrave, frieze, and modillioned cornice. The marble entablature is intact for the most part, with the exception of a few missing dentils and foliations. The balustrade above the two wings originally extended above the flanking bays in the main block but it was removed in the twentieth century.

The east and west facades are identical. Each is composed of three bays, each with three windows, with a triangular pediment topping the center bay.

The windows on the second and third floors in the center bay are the same as those above the main entrance. Wood doors on the first floor have frames with simpler, flatter, and less flamboyant detailing than the ornament generally seen in the Courthouse. They appear to be later additions, but no documentation has been found to sest when they were installed. A modern metal awning was installed over the door on the east facade.

The flanking bays of the side facades and the wings on the main facade share the same ornamental treatment. All of the details on the east and west facades, with the exception of the doors and a few windows, are original and intact.

The rear, or south, facade, is composed of three sections and is the same as the main facade, except for the center wing. In Kellum's design this bay was to have a portico with Corinthian columns, similar to the north portico, but it was never built. Instead, the south wing was added when Leopold Eidlitz finished the building in the late 1870s.

The four-story wing is three windows wide and three windows deep. The marble ashlar facing has a smooth finish and is similar to the main building in color. The design of each floor is different. The first floor has a cluster of three arched windows on the east and west facades of the wing, and a door
