Designated July 19, 1994

The New Brighton Association was formed in 1834 with plans to create a residential and resort community on the hillsides overlooking New York harbor. The Panic of 1837 ended the association, but one, possibly two, model homes initially built still exist as does the street plan. Later 19th-century homes in the district incorporate the picturesque Shingle, Colonial Revival and Italianate styles among others. A number were designed by Staten Island architect Edward Alfred Sargent.

“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”
