Local nonprofit Tribeca Trust is seeking a landmark designation for a house at 84 Walker Street that is said to be the second oldest in Lower Manhattan.

The New York Chinese Baptist Church occupies the four-story Property Near Lafayette Street that was built before 1830, the Broadsheet Daily reported. The group plans to redraw the map of Tribeca’s four historic districts and present it to the Landmarks Preservation Commission for consideration, so that a building like 84 Walker can be included.

“These borders were set in 1992,” Lynn Ellsworth of Tribeca Trust told the Broadsheet Daily. “They are jagged, irregular lines that cut through the middle of blocks and sawtooth left and right. It’s clear that this was the result of extreme gerrymandering and pandering to property owners who didn’t want their land to be in the Historic District.” [Broadsheet Daily]Mark Maurer
