Part of a series of 22 plaques surrounding Union Square depicting the history of the square from 1600 to 1882 - the year in which the first Labor Day Parade took place at Union Square, and labor movement events that were held in the United States (Union)

The plaques are made of bronze, designed by Gregg LeFevre and set up in 2002

The Academy of Music was built in 1854 and became the residence of the New York Opera. The building that was destroyed in a fire in 1866 was rebuilt, and remained in place until 1926
Tammany Hall (or Society of St. Tammany) was a political organization close to the Democratic Party that operated primarily among immigrants who came to New York (mostly of Irish descent). In 1867 when the organization gained influence, a house was built for him at 141 East 14th Street. The building was sold and demolished in 1927
In the location of the two buildings, the Consolidated Edison building was erected

The building on the left of the sign is the Academy of Music and to its right is Tammany Hall
