33-37 Belair Road House (Woodland Cottage)
33-37 Belair Road House (Woodland Cottage), Shore Acres, Staten Island
The 33-37 Belair Road House is one of the few surviving picturesque Gothic Revival cottages that dates from the early period of Staten Island's suburban development. Constructed c.1844 by a developer as a rental residence known as Woodland Cottage, it was once one of the many Gothic Revival villas and cottages built in the east shore suburb of Clifton after the late 1830s. Although its architect is unknown, the cottage reflects the influence of Alexander Jackson Davis whose work includes a number of residences designed for Staten Island clients. Between 1858 and 1869, Woodland Cottage served as the rectory for St. John's Episcopal Church.
The original portion of the house is a cross-gabled, two-story section of clapboard. Its significant features include a prominent center chimney, steep gables ornamented with bargeboards, casement windows with diamond-shaped panes and label moldings, and a porch extending the width of the facade.
The gabled section at the western end of the house was added c.1900 by a later owner, the Staten Island builder, James Thompson. His work includes the exterior and interior carpentry of the second St. John's Church completed in 1871, a designated New York City Landmark. Although the addition repeats the Gothic Revival style bargeboard of the original structure, Queen Anne features such as the decoratively treated window sash reveal its later date. This addition is similar to the many turn-of-the-century residences in Clifton — some of them built by Thompson — which transformed a romantic suburb to the more densely settled neighborhood that exists today.
Staten Island's Early Suburban Development
The course of Staten Island's early history as a relatively isolated and sparsely settled community of farmers and fishermen was first altered in 1799 when the Port of New York Quarantine Station was relocated from Governor's Island to the north shore area that soon became known as Tompkinsville, the name of the small village that grew up around it. Regular steamboat ferry service between Tompkinsville and Whitehall in Manhattan was established in 1817, and by 1827 Staten Island's first summer resort hotel — the Pavilion — had been built on the hillside behind the Quarantine Station.
Staten Island's picturesque rural environment and its accessibility from lower Manhattan also made it a logical choice for the development of New York City's early suburbs. Wooded slopes, panoramic views of Upper New York Bay, and extensive shore frontage offered an ideal setting where "men engaged in active business" might "withdraw from the labor and anxiety of commerce to the quiet of their own families, unexposed to intrusion." Thus was New Brighton, the first of the Island's large, comprehensively planned suburbs, advertised in 1836.
New Brighton was initiated by Thomas E. Davis, a successful and wealthy Manhattan land developer. By 1834 he had acquired a large tract of land extending westward from today's St. George Ferry Terminal to Sailors' Snug Harbor and constructed several Greek Revival houses along the Shore Road, the present Richmond Terrace. The potential of the area quickly attracted the attention of other investors, and they joined with Davis to form the New Brighton Association. Streets and building lots were laid out and an elaborate brochure promoting the new suburb prepared.
The depiction of the proposed development included in the brochure shows the hillside bounded by Hamilton and Westervelt Avenues occupied by a series of crescent streets lined by dwellings in a variety of medievalizing and classicizing styles. The western portion of the development was to retain a more wooded setting. There scattered rooftops poke up above the trees. Several large hotels and a number of bathing pavilions stand along the shore.
The proposed suburb of New Brighton soon had a competitor. By 1836 another group of New York City businessmen and real estate developers had purchased a number of farms lying between the Narrows and today's Vanderbilt Avenue. Like their New Brighton counterparts, they formed an organization — the Staten Island Association—established new streets, and published an elaborate brochure advertising the suburb of Clifton. Unfortunately, no copies of the twenty-four page pamphlet appear to have survived and our knowledge of the Association's composition and intentions is incomplete, but if similar to the New Brighton Association's promotional literature, the beauty of the east shore with its rising hills culminating in the cliffs at the Narrows and its views of both Upper and Lower New York Bays would have been extolled as a prime attraction.
Although a number of factors, including the Panic of 1837, determined that neither of the two suburbs evolved as quickly nor in the manner envisioned by their original developers, Blood's 1845 map of the north and east shores reveals that a substanti
