Greek Revival Staten Island Tompkinsville

This frame house, built in modified Greek Revival style, is located in the old village of Stapleton. Of the original structure built in 1835, only the kitchen wing still remains. A tetra-stye portico, with Corinthian columns rising two stories to an entablature, projects from the front facade. The house was built by Richard G. Smith, whose wife was a member of an important Staten Island family; her father, Daniel D. Tompkins, was governor of New York State and vice president of the United States under James Monroe.

“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”
