Greek Revival Staten Island West New ... VIEW ALL

This two-story frame house demonstrates how pervasive the Greek Revival had become by the second quarter of the nineteenth century. The design of the Gardiner-Tyler House must certainly have come from its builder rather than a trained architect. Yet, with the aid of pattern books, he was able to include many elements essential to the style. Elizabeth Racey built this house about 1835 on land once owned by Nathaniel Britton. Juliana and David Gardiner purchased this house for their daughter Julia, who married President John Tyler in 1844.

“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”
