Historic Provenance. Awash with a storied history only found on Centre Market Place, #7 is in a class all its own. Named in 1837 for the wholesaler New York Central Market, the street emerged into a lovely enclave of 8 distinctive townhouses. The first building on the block, at the corner of Grand, is home to ONieal's, one of the oldest taverns in NYC, which was established as Callahans around 1880. After the NYPD headquarters was built across the street circa 1905, a tunnel was dug from the headquarters to the bar so the police had undetected access. #9 was once a privately run public bathhouse. The block also included several gun stores, and was home to many well-known writers, poets, and artists, including the noted crime photographer Weegee.
