STATUS Designated Individual Landmark

33-37 Belair Road


DATE: 1845; 1900

STYLE: Gothic Revival

Gothic Revival Shore Acres Staten Island

Constructed c. 1844 by a developer as a rental residence known as Woodland Cottage, 33-37 Belair Road was once one of the many Gothic Revival villas and cottages built in the east shore suburb of Clifton after the late 1830s. The original portion of the house is a cross-gabled, two-story section of clapboard. The gabled section at the western end of the house was added c.l900 by a later owner, the Staten Island builder, James Thompson. Although the addition repeats the Gothic Revival style bargeboard of the original structure, Queen Anne features such as the decoratively treated window sash reveal its later date.

“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”
