Staten Island, NY 10307
Village Voice's Description
Granted, it sounds like a building in a Hilton Resort, but this aptly and uncreatively named house is a large 17th century stone manor. And it is named for failed peace talked that occurred on September 11, 1776 between the British and the Americans.
Tips from foursquare
Did you know? This is known as the site of failed peace talks in 1776 between Benjamin Franklin, John Adams and Edward Rutledge of the Continental Army and the British to avert the Revolutionary War.
The Staten Island Peace Conference was held here on Sept 11, 1776, which unsuccessfully attempted to end the American Revolutionary War. It's the only pre-Revolutionary house still surviving in NYC.
It's haunted. I attended a seance there years ago. A very cool place to visit.
Stroll along the beach with your beloved while the sun shines, and enjoy views of the Raritan Bay from the romantically lit pavilion after the sun sets.
