3833 Amboy Road is an increasingly rare reminder of Staten Island’s rural past. A smaller, earlier gable-roofed, clapboarded house was apparently expanded around 1840 to create an impressive farmhouse. Details were added at this time including a paneled door with sidelights, a dentilled cornice and end chimneys. Its 19th-century occupants, a farmer and later an oysterman, reflect the agricultural nature of Staten Island.
