Historic Buildings free pdf Excerpt from Historic Buildings: Now Standing in New York, Which Were Erected Prior to Eighteen Hundred The irregularity of the streets below Bowling Green, - the open space set apart in 1626 for common use, - is evidence of the haphazard way in which the first settlers placed their houses. At first there were only two recognized roads. One of them led from the fort to Brooklyn Ferry at about the present Peck Slip, along the line of the present Stone and Pearl Streets (the latter then the water front). The other, on the line of the present Broadway, went north from the fort, out of the town through Peter Stuyvesant's "Bowerie," or country place, from which this part of the road took its name "the Bowery," and on into the wilderness. For more than a century this was the only highway traversing the island from end to end, and was famous as the Boston Post Road. In these early days the favorite dwelling-place of the quality of the town was along the canal that ran the length of the present Broad Street, then called Heere Gracht. The palisade, built in 1653 along the line of the present Wall Street for protection against a threatened attack by New Englanders, marked the northern limit of the town, and for many years served to retard the natural growth of the town in that direction. In 1664 there were only twelve buildings outside the wall, and only one-third of the area within was built upon. The western side of the town, from Bowling Green northwards, was entirely given over to gardens, orchards, and green fields. On the east the farthest outlying dwelling was Wolfert Webber's tavern on the northern highway, near the present Chatham Square, where travellers rested on their perilous journey to Harlem. Except for the settlement at Sappo-kanican, afterwards Greenwich Village, and the few farms along the highway, this region was empty. Annual round-ups were held of the herds which ran wild in the brush country, beginning where City Hall now stands. Soon after the settlement on Manhattan the Dutch and English turned covetous eyes on Long Island, particularly the neighborhood of Flat-lands, Flushing, Jamaica, and Brooklyn, and here they early built their homes. The English also settled upon Staten Island. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
