The home of the city's Democratic establishment in the 19th and early 20th centuries -- and a site synonymous with some of New York's worst political corruption -- was given landmark status yesterday by the Landmarks Preservation Commission.

The neo-Georgian Tammany Hall building, at 100 E. 17th St., was completed in 1929 and was the headquarters of the corrupt Tammany Hall Democratic political machine until its pay-to-play schemes were exposed and Mayor Jimmy Walker was forced to resign a few years later.

The group sold the building in 1943, and it now houses the New York Film Academy.
