"One of New York's greatest historical landmarks, Federal Hall National Memorial, can be defined by what it is not. It is not widely enough known. It is not well enough visited. And it is not Federal Hall, writes the @nytimes reporter David Dunlap. That building — where George Washington was inaugurated and where the first Congress convened in 1789 — was demolished in 1812. The memorial built 30 years later was called the Custom House. To many in Lower Manhattan passing by today, it's a mysterious building that appears to be sealed shut. But its admirers are about to make another attempt at engaging the public. @heislerphoto captured a worker adjusting lighting on an eagle sculpture in the main rotunda of Federal Hall."
