A 19th Century Meeting Hall
—193 Bowery —In 1892, anarchist leader Emma Goldman led a meeting at Military Hall in defense of her lover/comrade, Alexander Berkman, jailed after a botched attempt to assassinate industrialist Henry Clay Frick, villain of the bloody Homestead Steel Strike. A focal point for agitation on many fronts, it was Military Hall at which, after fierce debate in 1853, officers of the 8-year-old Municipal Police agreed to wear an official uniform.
