He was a professor at General Theological Seminary in New York City for three years (1821-1824) but spent most of his life in politics and government. He was a member of the State assembly (1820-1823) and of the State senate (1838-1841), served in the Nineteenth, Twentieth, Twenty-first and Twenty-second Congresses (1825-1833), and was chairman of the Ways and Means Committee.

At the local level, he served as governor of the city hospital (1823-1865), regent (1826-1870) and vice chancellor (1858-1870) of the State university, and president of the board of commissioners of immigration (1846-1870), and was a member of the State constitutional convention in 1867 and 1868. He also ran unsuccessfully for Mayor in 1834.
