Where is the PCW House?Edited: 03 August 2011, 11:35
.. but not when it was built!
before I read this thread, just going off the title I was going to suggest Bilmin! ;-)
The Wyckoff house was built in 1652 and is the oldest in NYC, and the second oldest in the state. A carpenters shed on Gardiner's Island built in 1639 or the Old House in Cutchouge [Long Island] built in 1649 is the oldest.
In Manhattan, one of the problems was that there was a huge fire that destroyed much of the colonial city. The oldest surviving building is Fraunces Tavern from 1719. Etienne "Stephen" DeLancey built the current building as his house; it has been a tavern since 1762.
Mel you are very good but Frances Tavern has been rebuilt several times. It was actually bombed in the 60's they try to rebuild it from sketches of the original and it might have original brick and the museum, bar, and restaurant are worth a visit.
