We tear it down…..The Schuyler House.

We tear it down.....The Schulyer House.

“Philip Schuyler’s House on State and Pearl built in 1667 and torn down for a bank in 1924. He was the father of the city’s first mayor. The city continued to knock down its Dutch history throughout the 20th century until there was not a single intact Dutch building left. ”
