Seaman Cottage re-calendared

House moved to new site in Staten Island. On July 12, 2005, Landmarks re-calendared for designation the Seaman Cottage in Staten Island. Seaman Cottage, constructed in 1836, is a two-story house in the Greek Revival Style featuring clapboard siding and complimentary window and door surrounds. Landmarks had originally calendared the item for designation on October 12, 2004 and held a public hearing on October 26, 2004, but Seaman Cottage has since been moved from its original location at 218 Center Street to a new site at 441 Clarke Avenue in Historic Richmond Town, a historic village and museum complex.

As a result, at the July 12 public hearing, Landmarks acted to de-calendar the previous landmark site and re-calendar the new site. All Commissioners unanimously approved both motions and Chair Robert B. Tierney expressed his appreciation for Seaman Cottage’s addition to Historic Richmond Town.

LPC: Seaman Cottage, 441 Clark Avenue, Staten Island (LP-2168) (July 12, 2005).
