Oldest Building in New York

September 28, 2017



New York Mayor Stephanus van Cortlandt built the oldest building in NYC in 1671 on this site. It was later passed to his son-in-law, Etienne “Stephen” DeLancey.

“DeLancey built the current building as a house in 1719. The small yellow bricks used in its construction were imported from the Dutch Republic and the sizable mansion ranked highly in the province for its quality. His heirs sold the building in 1762 to Samuel Fraunces who converted the home into the popular tavern, first named the Queen’s Head.”In 1783 , this is also where First President George Washington bid farewell to his officers of the Continental Army and held meetings here regularly. Manhattan’s oldest surviving building, FYI yellow brick is from the original design when it was once a house passed down.
