View of the Narrows
This view could have been from the vicinity of Fort Hill in Staten Island since the large white edifice with the cupola/tower is one of the buildings at the Quarantine Station in Tompkinsville, Staten Island. The Dutch Reformed Church is to the left. The artist's Dutch heritage and training are evident in the cluster of village buildings nestled into the earth and the two figures in costume are reminiscent of the Lowlands.
