CITY ART ANECDOTES:

Tweed Court House in the Financial District at 52 Chambers St near Broadway. A national symbol of municipal corruption, this marble-adorned courthouse, built after the Civil War was originally expected to cost $350,000, but its final tab was $13 million, with much of the money disappearing in kickbacks to the notorious Boss Tweed; recently renovated, it now serves as home to the city's Department of Education.


Wall Street - When the Dutch settled her in 1625, Wall Street -- where there really was a wall - marked the city's northern limit. Today, "The Street" remains a symbol of American financial strength.

Woolworth Building - This building - once the world's tallest - was dubbed the Cathedral of Commerce. The breathtaking lobby contains jewel-like mosaics, filigree brass work and, hidden among the gnarled gargoyles, figures of Frank Woolworth and architect Cass Gilbert.


Jane's Carousel is a magical sight on the East River, appealing to children and adults in a dreamlike event in Brooklyn Bridge Park. Artist Jane Walentas led a careful restoration including 1200 colorful lights.The carousel has retained its classical design with 48 exquisite horses with 2 chariots. 718-222-2503 -- Brooklyn Bridge Park
