Gothic Revival Italianate Mariners Harbor Staten ... VIEW ALL

The handsome residence at 2876 Richmond Terrace was built in c. 1853 for Stephen D. Barnes, an oysterman, and his wife Judith. This substantial brick house combines elements of the Italianate and Gothic Revival styles, both of which were popular at that date. Located in Mariners’ Harbor, it is one of the very few surviving houses of the “Captains’ Row” which once lined the Shore Road (now Richmond Terrace) facing the Kill van Kull and Newark Bay.

“I don’t know what the City would be without HDC. [They] testified before LPC time after time and helped us focus on the right issues. We would not be an historic district without HDC! ”

“Use HDC as a resource because they know what they are doing and can offer advice on how to go about creating a district from every front: architectural, political, LPC, and the media. I had floundered prior to my involvement with this invaluable organization.”

“HDC provided guidance and shared information during that process—we knew which Council members were going one way or another and we changed a few minds. I don’t think NoHo would have had as cohesive a district had it not been for HDC’s aid.”

“I remember Richard saying at a meeting, we have someone here from HDC, Nadezhda Williams, Director of Preservation and Research, to help us. She said to us, ‘You are not the only ones going through this.’ HDC included us in an enormous community”
