This South Shore neighborhood on Staten Island was once known for its oysters and summer homes. Used as a fishing village in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, Princess Bay was famous for their oysters that could be found in prominent seafood restaurants in Manhattan and London.
The Abraham Manee House is one of the oldest homes in New York. Located at 509 Seguine Avenue, the oldest parts of the home date back to 1670 and have been deemed endangered by the New York City’s Preservation Committee.
Another historical house is the Seguine Mansion, featuring eighteen rooms and its architecture is of the Greek revival period. The Estate is located on Lemon Creek, an 80-acre park of City and State-owned lands that have been left largely in a natural state.( http://seguinemansion.org/ )
