 ST. GEORGE/NEW BRIGHTON

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. Designated July 19, 1994.
