New Brighton From New York Bay

New Brighton From New York Bay

8 1/2" x 11" Reproduction paper size
Line engraving. Upon the front piece to Volume 1, July 1837, of the Richmond County Mirror. From a painting by John Gadsby Chapman, NA (1808-1889), engraved by John A. Rolph (1799-1862). The engraving was reprinted with the title NEW BRIGHTON IN THE VINCINTY OF NEW YORK, in The Rover, 1844. This is a much more accurate view of the town than the idealized engraving in the Description of New Brighton pamphlet. The so-called Greek temple houses along Richmond Terrace, the Pavilion Hotel, the ferry dock at the foot of York Avenue, and the single building of the Sailors’ Snug Harbor are easily recognized. Only a few residences can be seen upon Brighton Heights.

Price before or at event June 13: $50.
Price after June 13: $65.
