These are photos from my neighborhood of Port Richmond, Staten Island, New York, USA. It is one of the oldest communities on Staten Island and borders the Kull Van Kill, a body of water that separates Staten Island from New Jersey. One of the battles of the Revolutionary War was fought in Port Richmond which was first settled by the Dutch in the 1600’s. As you probably know, the British used Staten Island as their home base during the Revolutionary War.
This is now an apartment house on Port Richmond Avenue at Richmond Terrace. Formerly, it was a hotel where Aaron Burr died in 1836.
