AN ACT TO AMEND THE CHARTER OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK. 

Passed April 14, 1857, theee-fifths being present. 



Tlie People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and Assem- 
bly, do enact as follows : 

Sec. 1. The Corporation now existing, and known by the name of 
" The Mayor, Aldermen and Commonalty of the City of New York," 
shall continue to be a body politic and corporate, in fact and in name, by 
the same name, and shall have perpetual succession, with all the grants, 
powers and privileges heretofore had by " the Mayor, Aldermen and 
Commonalty of the City of New York." 

§ 2. The legislative power of the said Corporation shall be vested in a 
Board of Aldermen and a Board of Councilmen, who together shall form 
the Common Council of the city of New York. 

§ 3. The Board of Aldermen shall consist of one Alderman to be 
elected from each district in the city and county of New York, as herein- 
after provided for. The members of the Board of Aldermen first elected 
under this act shall be classified as follows : The Aldermen from districts 
having an odd numerical designation shall hold such office for the term of 
one year, and those from districts having an even numerical designation 
shall hold such office for the term of two years. At all subsequent elec- 
tions for Aldermen, they shall be elected for the full term of two years. 

§ 4. There shall be six Councilmen elected from each senatorial district 
in the city of New York, as the same now are or may hereafter be con- 
stituted, by general ticket, in each of said districts; and the persons 
2 



14 

elected from each of said senatorial districts shall together form the 
Board of Councilmeu for the said city. The Councilmcn shall be chosen 
for one year. 

§ 5. No person shall be eligible to the office of Alderman or Councilman, 
who shall not, at the time of his election, be a resident of the district 
from which he is chosen. 

§ 6. Each Board of the Common Council shall have power to direct a 
special election to be held, to supply the place of any member whose 
seat shall become vacant by death, removal from the city, resignation, or 
otherwise, and in either case the person elected to supply the vacancy 
shall hold his seat only for the residue of the term of office of his imme- 
diate predecessor. 

§ 7. The Boards shall meet in separate chambers, and a majority of 
either shall be a quorum to do business. Each Board shall appoint a 
President from its own body, and shall choose its clerk and other officers, 
determine the rules of its own proceedings, and be the judge of the elec- 
tion, returns and qualifications of its own members. Each Board shall 
keep a journal of its proceedings, and its doors shall be kept open, except 
when the public welfare shall require secrecy ; and all resolutions and 
reports of committees, which shall recommend any specific imiJrovement, 
involving the appropriation of public moneys, or the taxing or assessing 
the citizens of the city, shall be published immediately after the adjourn- 
ment of the Board, under the authority of the Board, in all the news- 
papers employed by the Corporation, and shall not be passed or adopted 
until after such notice has been published at least two days ; and when- 
ever a vote is taken in relation thereto, the ayes and noes shall be called, 
and published in the same manner. 

§ 8. Each Board shall have the authority to compel the attendance of 
absent members, to punish its members for disorderly behavior, and to 
expel a member with the concurrence of two-thirds of the members 
elected to the Board ; and the member so expelled shall, by such expul- 
sion, forfeit all his rights and powers as an Alderman or Councilman, and 
no Alderman or Councilman shall be questioned in any other place for 
any speech or vote in either Board. 

§ 9. The stated and occasional meetings of each Board of the Common 
Council shall be regulated by its own ordinances ; and both Boards may 
meet on the same or on different daj's, as they may severally judge 
expedient. 

§ 10. Any person holding office under this charter, who shall, during 
his term of office, accept, hold, or retain any other civil office of honor, 
trust or emolument under the government of the United States, or under 
this charter, or who shall, during his said term of office, receive any fees 
or emoluments, directed to be paid by any ordinance of the Common 
Council, except as is hereinafter provided, shall be deemed thereby to 
have vacated his office. 



15 

§ 11. Every legislative act of the Common Council shall be by ordi- 
nance, act, or resolution, which shall have passed the two Boards of 
Common Council, before it shall take effect, shall be presented, duly cer- 
tified, to the Mayor of the city for his approval. If he approve, he shall 
sign it ; if not, he shall return it within ten days thereafter, with his ob- 
jections, to the Board in which it originated, or, if such Board be not 
then in session, at its next stated meeting. The Board to which it shall 
be returned shall enter the objections at large on their journal, and 
cause the same to be published in one or more of the daily newspapers of 
the city. But no ordinance, act, or resolution shall be valid, unless the 
same shall have received the assent of both Boards within the same year. 

§ 12. The Board, to which such ordinance, act, or resolution, shall have 
been so returned, shall, after the expiration of not less than ten days 
thereafter, proceed to reconsider the same. If, after such reconsidera- 
tion, at least two-thirds of all the members elected to the Board shall 
agree to pass the same, it shall be sent, together with the objections, to 
the other Board, by which it shall be likewise reconsidered, and, if ap- 
proved, by at least two-thirds of all the members elected to such Board, 
it shall take effect as an act or law of the Corporation. In all such cases, 
the votes of both Boards shall be determined by yeas and nays, and the 
names of the persons voting for and against the passage of the ordinance 
reconsidered shall be entered on the journal of each Board respectively. 

§ 13. If tlie Mayor shall not return the ordinance so presented to him 
within the time above limited for that purpose, it shall take effect in the 
same manner as if he had approved of it. 

§ 14. Any ordinance of the Common Council may originate in either 
Board, and, when it shall have passed one Board, may be rejected or 
amended by the other. But no ordinance shall be passed by either 
Board, except by the vote of a majority of all the members elected to 
such Board. 

§ 15. Neither the Mayor nor Recorder of the city of New York shall be 
a member of the Common Council thereof. 

§ 16. The executive power of the Corporation shall be vested in the 
Mayor and the Executive Departments. 

§ 17. Whenever there shall be a vacancy in the ofQce of Mayor, or 
whenever the Mayor shall be absent from the city, or be prevented by 
sickness, or any other cause, from attending to the duties of his office, or 
shall be removed as hereinafter provided for, the President of the Board 
of Aldermen shall act as Mayor, and shall possess all the rights and 
powers of the Mayor, during the continuance of such vacancy, absence, 
or disability, and until the next charter election, in the case of a vacancy 
or removal from ofiBoe. 

§ IS. It shall be the duty of the Mayor— 

1. To communicate to the Common Council, at least once a year, 
and oftener if he shall deem it expedient, a general statement of the 



16 

situation and condition of tlic city, in relation to its government 
finances, and improvements. 

2. To recommend for tlie adoption of the Common Council all 
such measures connected with the j)olice, security, health, cleanliness,

and finances, as he shall deem expedient. 

3. To be vigilant and active in causing tlie ordinances of the city to 
be duly executed and enforced. 

4. To exercise a constant supervision over the conduct and acts of

of this State or the United States. 

5. To appoint such clerks as may be authorized by the Common 
Council, and as may be required in his office, to aid him in the dis-

§ 19. The Ma3'or, Comptroller, and Counsel to the Corporation, shall 
each be elected by the electors of the city ; the Mayor for the term of 
two years, the Counsel to the Corporation for the term of three years, and 
the Comptroller for the term of four years. The Comptroller shall be 
voted for on a separate ballot. The other heads of departments shall be 
appointed by the Mayor, with the advice and consent of the Board of 
Aldermen. The Board of Aldermen shall have power to confirm or 
reject all nominations of officers made by the Mayor ; and whenever any 
person nominated by the Mayor shall be rejected by the Board of Alder- 
men, the Mayor shall immediately nominate another person. 

§ 20. The Maj'or, Comptroller, and Counsel to the Corporation, may 
each be removed by the Governor, for cause, in the manner provided by 
law in the case of sheriffs. The vacancy occasioned by the removal of

twelve gentlemen to compose the Board. By a supplementary act, 
passed April 17, 1858, the terms of the Supervisors were continued, and a 
classification of the members ordered, which divided the Board into six 
classes, with terms varying from one to six yeai'S, each class to consist of 
one member elected and one appointed at the election first held ; and 
thereafter two Supervisors to be annually chosen at the county election, to 
serve for six years each.

The Judge at Chambers will continue to hold the same to and includ-

cept when otherwise directed herein. 

All applications for business to be transacted at Chambers and Special 
term must be made to the Judge assigned to hold that branch of the 
Court. 



REGULATIONS. 

All issues of fact already joined and triable in the city of New York 
will be noticed to the Clerk, and be put on the Calendar for the ensuing 
January Circuit. 

During the first week of that Circuit, motions to correct the Calendar 
may be made. 

After that week the Calendar will remain unchanged, and continue the 
Calendar for every successive circuit until all the causes on it shall be 
tried ; each Circuit beginning on the Calendar where the immediately pre- 
ceding Circuit left off", and new causes to be placed in order at the foot 
of the permanent Calendar. 

After the first week of each Circuit (during which motions to correct 
the Calendar may be made), the Calendar of the causes which may have 
gone down at the previous Circuit and the new issues will be entered as 
part and in continuation of the permanent Calendar ; and so on, from 
court to court, until the end of the year. 

These regulations do not affect the question of noticing the causes for 
trial to the opposite party, as the statute may require. 

Hereafter no causes will be reserved, generally, after they are placed 
on the day Calendar. 



119 

No cause on any day Calendar will be passed, except where the coun- 
sel is actually engaged in a trial of a cause in another court in the city, 
or in the Court of Appeals , and then only until such an engagement is 
discharged, or upon proof of the absence of a witness duly subpoenaed. 

Parties, by consent, may apply to the clerk, and have any cause on 
the Circuit Calendar reserved generally, and set down for a particular 
day, before it is placed on the day Calendar ; and may, on filing with the 
clerk a like consent, have the same placed on the day Calendar, or apply 
to the Court, on a notice of two days therefor. 



SPECIAL CIRCUIT CALENDAR. 

At any Circuit, until further orders, any causes belonging to either of 
the following classes may be placed on a special Circuit Calendar, unless 
tlie trial is likely to occupy more than one hour. 

1st. Where the action is on contract, and the answer merely denies the 
allegations in the complaint, without setting up any new matter. 

2d. Where the action is on contract, and new matter is set up in the 
answer, and there shall be reason to believe that the defense is made 
only for the purpose of delay ; or, where it shall appear, by affidavit, 
that the cause can be tried in an hour. 

To entitle the cause to be placed on such Calendar, the Plaintiff's At- 
torney must give a notice of four days, to be heard before a Judge at 
Chambers, that he will move to have the cause placed on such Calendar ; 
and if the motion be granted, the cause may be heard on any subsequent 
Friday. 

If the motion be founded on the belief that the defense is for delay, or 
that the cause can be tried in an hour, affidavits must be served at the 
time of notice. 

The Plaintiff's Attorney must deliver to the Clerk of the Circuit a like 
notice one day before such Friday, containing also the number of the 
cause on the General Circuit Calendar. 

If the cause shall actually occupy more than one hour on the trial, the 
trial may be suspended, at the discretion of the Court, and the cause be 
put down at the foot of the Calendar.

NATHANIEL JARVIS, Jr., 

COURT OF COMMON PLEAS 
For the City and County of New York for the year 1862. 

ORDERED : 

1. The General Calendar for the trial of Jury Cases will be continued in 

its present condition for tlie year 1862, except that all the causes 
thereon will be renumbered. New causes noticed for January, or 
any subsequent Term, will be placed at the end of the General 
Calendar, in their order, according to date of issue. 

2. Causes may be generally reserved by a written consent of the attor- 

neys, filed at any time before the case is on the day calendar. 
Cases so reserved may afterwards be placed upon the day calen- 
dar, on the application of either party to the Judge at Chambers, 
provided two days' previous notice of such application be given to 
the adverse party. 

3. All causes marked " Off for the Term,^'' shall have priority at the 

succeeding term, and will be placed at the head of the calendar 
therefor. 

4. The Calendar of causes to be tried by the Court, without a jury, will 

be called at the trial terms on the fourth Mondays of January, 
March, May, and November. 

5. Fifteen causes will be placed on each day calendar, and no calendar 

will be made for Saturdays. 



123 

6. At the General Terms, in appeal cases arising in this Court, the par- 

ties may, by consent, reserve the argument until the second week 
in term, when all so reserved will be called in their order on the 
calendar. But in appeals from the Marine and Justices' Courts no 
such reservation will be allowed, and counsel therein must be pre- 
pared for the argument when the case is reached in its order. 

7. In any action on contract, where there is reason to believe that the 

defense is interposed for delay, and that the trial will not oc- 
cupy more than one hour, the plaintiff may, upon a notice of four 
days, apply at Chambers to have the cause placed upon the Spe- 
cial Calendar for short cases, and which will be made up for the 
last Friday in each trial term. 

The notice must be accompanied by the aflRdavits (if any) upon 
which the motion will be founded. 

If the motion be granted, the order to that effect shall forthwith 
be delivered to the Clerk, with a written notice specifying the 
number of the cause on the General Calendar. 

Sould the trial occupy more than one hour, it may be suspended, 
in the discretion of the Judge holding the court, and the cause will 
thereupon be placed at the foot of the General Calendar, unless 
otherwise specially ordered. 
By the Court.

SIXTY-THIRD ANNUAL llEPOET OF THE BOAKD OF TRUSTEES, 18G1. 
To the Bepresentatives of the New Yorlc Fire Bepai-tment : 

Gextlemes— In our Report which we had the honor to submit to your 
notice some few years ago, we congratulated you, as well as our fellow- 
citizens, on the merciful dispensation of a Divine Providence in protect- 
ing us from the evils of War, Pestilence, and Famine. Subsequently we 
had the pleasure of calling 3-our attention to the opinion entertained by 
the public Press in regard to the members of the Department, not only 
in the discharge of their duties as Firemen, but in the language as ex- 
pressed by one of the leading journals of this city, in the following 
words : " Our city has a sure protection in her military force, and, if ne- 
cessity required, could summon a powerful auxiliary in the sturdy and 
efficient Fire Department. No insignificant powers to support and en- 
force the law and maintain order." 

Although we have been spared the evils of pestilence and famine, it is 
with sorrow we have at this time to record the existence of an unnatural 
civil war, produced and continued by the ambitious and selfish views of 
political demagogues, whereby thousands of the people of this once happy 
Union are engaged in a deadly strife. 

When the trumpet of war, over six months ago, announced that our 
national capital was in danger, how prompt and truly did the members of 
the New York Fire Department verify the opinion set forth by the public 
press. In ten days a regiment was organized, embracing men of various 
occupations, who were willing to forego all social and domestic ties for 
the defense of the Constitution and laws of this Republic. What a 
proud day was the 29th of April for the New York Fire Department, 
when the First Regiment of the New York Fire Zouaves, under the com- 
mand of the lamented Ellsworth, hastened to the scene of danger ; and 
whatever censure may have subsequently been applied to this regiment, 
it must not be forgotten that it was the first regiment to occupy the 
enemy's ground, and sealed the doom of a traitor to his country, even at 
the sacrifice of their gallant Colonel. The wide difference in the duties 
of a fireman, in comparison to the discipline which is requisite to make 



]47 



an efficient soldier, is sufficient to exonerate tliem from tlie unjust cen- 
sure which has been bestowed on them. Their bravery and courage have 
never been questioned, even bj' their opponents. " They lOCT-e the target 
for the guns of the enemy, so hitter was their hatred to the Fire Zouaves.'''' 

In the death of their subsequent commander, Noah L. Farnham, the 
Department mourns the loss of one of their brightest ornaments, who 
sacrificed his life in defense of his country. At this time a portion of 
this gallant band, in their devotion to the Union, are confined as pri- 
soners of war many miles from their families and friends ; for their sake, 
and for the many good and faithful men who have offered their lives, or 
have been disabled in the service of their country, we ask in their name 
and memory not to censure the innocent for the guilty. Not only in the 
First Fire Zouaves do we find those who have been, or who are now, con- 
nected with the Department. Few regiments have departed from our 
city without a representation from the New York Fire Department. 

Your Trustees, in presenting to your notice a statement of the finan- 
cial affairs of the Department, derive great pleasure in stating that the 
amount of moneys expended in various charitable acts for over sixty 
years, in the aggregate exceeds, we believe, any charitable institution in 
the countrj'. 

Owing to the disturbed state of the country, we have been in a 
measure deprived of a portion of our revenue, and at the same time 
we have had to provide for a large additional number of applicants 
for assistance ; and it has been necessary to exercise a very careful 
distribution of moneys at our disposal, to meet all the calls on the fund. 
We appeal to those who are able, to assist us in our endeavors to relieve 
the wants of the widows, orphans, and disabled firemen with their aid ; 
and trust that, with the usual liberality of our citizens, we will be 
placed in a position to respond to their applications. In the discharge of 
our duties as Almoners of the Fund, we are governed by the rule laid 
down in the charter, to ascertain whether the applicants are in need and 
worthy of assistance. Parties applying under this rule will ever meet a 
ready response from the Trustees, and, wanting the aforesaid require- 
ments, will meet with a firm and positive denial ; for it is our duty to 
know and report to the Eepresentatives as well as the patrons of the 
Fund, that their moneys are justly distributed among those who, from 
various causes, have met with reverses in life, and have to seek for suc- 
cor in the hour of trouble from our noble Institution. 

By referring to the annexed Report of the Treasurer, you will perceive 
that, at the time of his last report, there was a balance in the Butchers' 
and Drovers' Bank, to the credit of the Department, amounting to six 
hundred and eighty-four dollars and seventy-three cents (S684.73). 
Since then he has received, from various sources, the sum of thirty-four 
thousand two hundred and sixty-nine dollars and sixty cents ($34,269.60), 
which in the aggregate amounts to thirty-four thousand nine hundred 



148 

and fifty-four dollars and tliirty-three cents ($34,954.33.) In the above 
sum is included eight thousand three hundred dollars ($8,300), for bonds 
and mortgages canceled. 

The disbursements during the past year have amounted, in the aggre- 
gate, to thirty-four tliousand seven hundred and sixty-nine dollars and 
forty -four cents ($34,709.44), including five thousand dollars reinvested in 
bonds and mortgages, and thirty-three hundred dollars ($3,300) in United 
States Government bonds. This amount is a portion received for bonds 
and mortgages canceled, leaving a balance in the Butchers' and Drovers' 
Bank, to the credit of the Department, of one hundred and eighty-four 
dollars and eighty-nine cents ($184.89.) 

The permanent Fund remains the same as the last report, namely, 
ninety-seven thousand two hundred and fifty dollars ($97,250), invested 
as follows : ninety-three thousand seven hundred dollars ($93,700) in 
bonds and mortgages ; thirty-three hundred dollars ($3,300) in United 
States Government bonds ; and two hundred and fifty dollars ($250) in 
Manhattan Bank Stock. 

We would be derelict in our duty were we to remain silent in regard to 
the valuable services rendered by the financial officer of the Fund, who 
is ever on the alert to preserve intact the great trust confided to his care, 
as well as affording your Trustees with the aid of his long and experienced 
information in relation to the financial affairs of the Department. 

In returning thanks to those who have assisted us in our charitable 
work, we have to acknowledge the sum of twenty-seven hundred and 
ninety-two dollars and thirty cents ($2,792.30), being the net proceeds of 
the Thirty-second Annual Firemen's Ball. In connection with the efibrts 
of the gentlemen who have from time to time comprised the Firemen's 
Ball Committee, it is due to them, that, through their exertions for the 
past thirty-two years, they have paid to the Treasurer, in aid of the Fire 
Department Fund, the net sum of seventy-four thousand two hundred 
and ninety-three dollars and eighty-eight cents ($74,293.88.) 

To the honorable Common Council we have to acknowledge the re- 
ceipt of the usual annual donation of two thousand dollars. 

To the proprietors of the New York Herald and Sun we are indebted 
for the whole amount of their respective bills for printing ; and from 
George C. Genet, Esq., Attorney to the Corporation, the sum of three 
hundred dollars ($300), paid to the Treasurer for penalties collected for 
violations of the Hoistway Ordinance. 

The Special Committee to solicit donations are ever engaged in seeking 
resources to sustain the Fund, and at a suitable time will call on the 
patrons of the Department. 

Your Trustees are pleased to report to you that the Court of 
Appeals have reafiBrmed their former decision in favor of the constitution- 
ality of the Foreign Insurance Laws. You will perceive, by the report of 
the Treasurer, the receipt of four thousand dollars, being the amount due 
for some years prior to the time of testing the legality of said laws. 



149 

The income derived from this source, although not amounting to as 
much as previous years, is at present one of our principal sources of 
revenue. 

The Committee on Fuel have distributed coal, amounting in all, as per 
report of the Treasurer, to fourteen hundred and eighty dollars and two 
cents (11,480.02). 

The Committee on Schools have distributed 1,405 pairs of shoes to the 
various recipients of the Department. The vacancies in the New York 
University still exist. It is hoped that, for the credit of the Department, 
they will be speedily filled. Any information relative to admission of 
pupils will be furnished by the School Committee. 

The Committee have made the usual contracts for the present season. 

At the time when your officers are looking for new sources of revenue 
to sustain the Fund, it is gratifying to know that your Honorable Body 
took the initiatory step in aiding them in their endeavors. The amend- 
ments of the By-Laws of the Board of Representatives, whereby the in- 
itiation fee has been increased, has been, and no doubt will be, beneficial 
to the Department, as well as in a financial sense. 

The expenses of the meetings of the Representatives, which were for- 
merly paid from the Fund, are now defrayed by the Representatives from 
an assessment on each Representative. 

Frequent complaints have been made in regard to the delay of obtain- 
ing Certificates of Membership ; it is due to exonerate the Treasurer and 
Chief Engineer from all blame. The subject has been referred to a Commit- 
tee of the Trustees, who will endeavor to remedy the same for the future. 

In addition to the various duties devolving on the Trustees, they were 
selected by the Union Defense Committee for the special duty of furnish- 
ing relief cards to the families of active and exempt members of the De- 
partment who enlisted in the volunteer regiments from this city. Although 
Committees were appointed for every Ward in this city, nevertheless the 
exception was made in favor of the Department, to attend to their own 
applicants ; a compliment fully appreciated by your Trustees, as evidence 
of the claims of the Department, and the confidence entertained by our 
citizens. 

It has been our duty, on previous occasions, to call to the attention of 
our brethren in the active ranks of the Department, that the prosperity 
of the Fund depended on the estimation in which the volunteer Depart- 
ment was held by our citizens. At the present age, when changes and 
innovations on long-established customs are so prevalent, how necessary 
it is to keep the Department in a position whereby it can escape from this 
rule. That the present system can be sustained, there can be no doubt, 
provided that each and every member of the Department will conduct 
themselves, and each constitute himself a guardian of the fair fame of the 
Department. If this is accomplished, little fear have we to anticipate for 
the future. 



150 



The term of service of Messrs. James Y. Watkins, Samuel B. Thomson, 
and Robert McGinnis expire at the annual meeting ; it will be necessary 
to elect three Trustees, for three years each. All of which is respect- 
fully submitted. 

By order of the Board of Trustees. 

HENRY A. BURR, President. 

George F. Nesbitt, Secretary. 



New York, Becembei' 2, 1861.

THE NEW ARMORY, OR DOWN-TOW\ ARSENAL. 



This edifice is situated on the corner of White and Elm streets. It is 
one hundred and thirty-one feet on White street, and eighty-four feet on 
Elm street. It is built of blue stone, only two stories high, the first being 
thirteen feet, and the second thirty feet high. The windows are very 
narrow, being only eighteen inches wide, so that, in case of an assault by 
a mob outside, the building could be defended with success by fifty men. 
The first floor is used as a gun-room and meeting-room, the second as a 
drill-room, and a rendezvous in case of a riot. The style is Gothic, and 
on the three corners of the building are situated towers ; there are five 
doors on White street, and one on Elm, which are made of boiler iron. It 
is built on piles driven into the ground. This building is used as a recep- 
tacle for a portion of the artillery of the first division of the New York 
State Militia. It is a very handsome building, and is constructed on the 
very best plan for defense. On the centre of the roof is erected a large 
flag-staff, by which communication from this building and the arsenal up- 
town may be carried on by signal telegraph.

* The sum of |4,667.36 is, by law, chapter 301, of 1S53, required to be raised by tax, annually, and 
invested by the Commissioners of the Sinking Funds, to constitute a fund for the redemption of tlie 
Public Education Stock, when it becomes due. The said amount has accordingly been raised in each 
yearsinceandincluding the year 1S54, and paid over to the credit of the Sinking Fund for the Re- 
demption of the City Debt for the above purpose, it being calculated that the aggregate amount of 
such annual contributions, with the accumulation of interest thereon, would produce a sum sufficient 
to pay the principal of the stock at its maturity, in 1873.

THE FREE ACADEMY. 

The Free Academy of the city of New York is the first institution 
established in this State by the popular sovereignty, and maintained at 
the public expense, for the purpose of extending to the pupils of the 
Common Schools the advantages of free education, in those Mgher de- 
partments of learning, which cannot be obtained but at a considerable 
expense in the colleges previously established in this State. It was in- 
tended to be the complement of the system of free public schools — mak- 
ing them complete and available for all classes of the people, and by 
their courses of studies and means of instruction, fitted to meet the wants 
of all, from the elementary instruction of early childhood to the more 
various and profound studies in literature and science, which constitute 
the higher departments of collegiate learning. 

The Board of Education of the city of New York took the first action 
in reference to the establishment of this institution, by the adoption of a 
resolution, introduced by Commissioner Townsend Harris, July 27th, 
1847, raising a Committee to report upon the subject. On January 20th, 
1847, a report was presented by said Committee, recommending the 
establishment of " a Free College or Academy,^'' and presenting its design, 
nature, and objects, in this language : "Your Committee will not at 
present enter into the details of the proposed institution, but will briefly 
remark, that their design is to ofier the idea of a college, which, while it 
shall be in no way inferior to any of our colleges in the character, amount, 
or value of the information given to the pupils, the course of studies to be 
pursued will have more especial reference to the active duties of opera- 



243 

tive life, rather than those more particularly regarded as necessary for 
the pulpit, bar, or the medical profession." 

The report was published, and considered at a meeting of the Board, 
held on the 10th of February, 1847, when a Committee was appointed to 
draft a memorial, in the name of the Board, to be presented to the Legis- 
ture, praying, among other things : 

First—" That the Legislature will be pleased to pass a law directing 
the Regents of the Universit3^to pay over to the Board of Education such 
amount of the literature fund as may be apportioned by them to the 
third, fourth, fifth, and sixth Senate Districts of this State ; such moneys 
to be applied to the support of a free college or academy, in the city of 
New York, for the instruction of students who have been pupils in the 
Common Schools of the said city." 

Second — " That the Legislature will further authorize the Board of Edu- 
cation in said city to call on the Supervisors, from time to time, to raise 
by tax such sums as may be required for the erecting, furnishing, and fit- 
ting up of said college or academy, and supporting the same, such sums 
to be notified to, and raised by the said Supervisors, in the same manner 
and under the same heading of taxation that the moneys for the support 
of Common Schools in said city are now raised." 

The memorial was drafted and presented to the Legislature, offering, 
among others, the following views and purposes : 

" One of the important objects designed to be secured by establishing 
a Free Academy is to bring the advantages of the best education that 
any school in our country can give within the reach of all the children of 
the city, whose genius, capacity, and desire of attainments are such as to 
render it reasonably certain that they maj^ be made, and by such means 
would become, eminently useful to society; the permanency of our free 
institutions, the future state of society, the extent to which the laws of 
the country will be regarded, and social quiet and order preserved, depend 
essentially upon the virtue and intelligence of the people." 

"Another object of the proposed free institution is, to create an addi- 
tional interest in, and more completely popularize the Common Schools. 
It is believed that they will be regarded with additional favor, and 
attended with increased satisfaction, when the pupils and their parents 
feel that the children who have received their primary education in these 
schools, can be admitted to all the benefits and advantages furnished by 
the best endowed college in the State, without any expense whatever. 
It is believed that such an institution as the proposed Free Academy is 
designed to be, in addition to the great benefits it will confer-by annually 
graduating a large number of highly-educated young men, destii;ed to 
pursue some of all the various pursuits of life, would stimulate tens of 
thousands, who might never enter into this Academy, to additional in- 
dustry and greater advances, while in the Common Schools. The cer- 
tainty to a young man of good abilities, and desirous of making large 



244 

acquisitions in knowledge, of having the opportunity of gaining as ex- 
tensive an education as can be acquired in any institution in the State, if 
his parents can only furnish him the means to subsist at home, is in the 
highest degree cheering, while the certainty that the limited earnings of 
his parents will preclude him, in the existing state of things, from having 
any such advantages, tends to repress such generous aspirations, par- 
alyze effort, and prevent the full development of his ability to become 
extensively useful to the class in which his lot may be cast, or to society 
at large." 

Such were the objects presented to the Legislature, to induce the 
passage of the law authorizing the establishment of the Free Acade- 
my. The people were promised an institution which, in the char- 
acter, amount, and value of the education imparted, should be infe- 
rior to none of our colleges, and at the same time should be so or- 
ganized that the course of studies to be pursued would tend to educate 
the pupils practically, and particularly qualify them to apply their learn- 
ing to advance and perfect the operations of the various trades and oc- 
cupations in which they may engage ; and, also, to furnish peculiar faci- 
lities for instruction of the highest order in various branches of knowl- 
edge, omitted altogether, or not practically taught, in our colleges. These 
views were approved by the Board, and concurred in by the succeeding 
Boards, who always have considered the Academy as a part of the Com- 
mon School system of the city, by which, in easy and continuous develop- 
ment, students may pass on, as far as they are able, to the higher levels of 
literary and scientific education — an institution uniting in a properly pro- 
gressive system the usual duties of the American Academy and the Ame- 
rican College — retaining always its characteristic peculiarity of an agency 
of the government, in offering to all the people, equally, the means of 
educating their sons up to the point from which they respectively are to 
start in the pursuit of manhood and citizenship, and meeting the wants 
not onlj' of those whose wealth is largely taxed to support education, 
but of those, more numerous, whose aggregate taxes are still larger, and 
also those whose more slender resources are subject to no direct pecu 
niary tax, but who, in numberless indirect exactions, contribute their full 
share in supporting the burdens of organized society. 

The act authorizing the Board to establish a Free Academy was passed 
May 7th, 1847, providing, as a condition to its becoming a law, that 
the question whether such academy should be established according to 
its provisions, should be submitted to the people at the election to be 
held on the first Monday of June, 1847, and that a majority of the votes 
given must be in favor of the proposition. The question was so submit- 
ted, and 19,404 votes were given in favor of it, to 3,409 against— leaving 
a majority of 15,995. 



245 



ORGANIZATION OP THE FREE ACADEMY. 

By the statute, it is made the duty of the Board of Education : 

"To continue to furnish, through the Free Academy, the benefit of 
education gratuitously, to persons who have been pupils in the Common 
Schools of the said city and county, for a period of time to be regulated 
by the Board of Education, not less than one year. 

"To supervise, manage, and govern said Free Academy, and make all 
needful rules and regulations therefor; fix the number and compensation 
of teachers and others to be employed therein; prescribe the preliminary 
examination, and the terms and conditions on which pupils shall be 
received and instructed therein and discharged therefrom ; direct the 
course of studies therein, and provide in all things for the good govern- 
ment and management of the said Free Academy ; and purchase the 
books, apparatus, stationery, and other things necessary and expedient 
to enable the said Free Academy to be properly and successfully con- 
ducted, and to keep the said building or buildings properly repaired and 
furnished. And the Board, upon the recommendation of the Faculty of 
the Free Academy, may grant the usual degrees and diplomas in the arts, 
to such persons as shall have completed a full course of study in the said 
Free Academy. 

" To appoint annually a standing committee of not less than five per- 
sons of theii- number, who shall, subject to the control, supervision and 
approbation of the said Board, constitute an Executive Committee, for 
the care, government, and management of the said Free Academy, under 
the rules and regulations prescribed as aforesaid, whose duty it shall be to 
make detailed reports to the said Board of Education, and, among other 
things, to recommend the rules and regulations which they deem neces- 
sary and proper for the said academy." 

The organization of the institution, based on the above enactments, is 
shown in the following digest of the by-laws of the Board of Education 
and regulativons of the Faculty. 

REQUISITES FOR ADMISSION. 

The examination of candidates for admission takes place immediately 
after the general examination in July, and continues at the same hours 
every da3% until concluded. No student can be admitted to the Academy 
unless he resides in the city, be fourteen years of age, shall have attended 
the Common Schools in the city twelve months, and shall pass a good 
examination in 

Spelling, Algebra, as far as quadratic equations, 

Eeading, Geography, [Inclusive, 

Writing, History of the United States, 

English Grammar, Constitution of the United States, 

Arithmetic, Elementary Book-keeping. 

No candidate can be examined for admission unless he shall present to 



24(1 

tlic Priucipal of tliu Academy a certificate, in the form prepared Ly tlie 
Executive Committee, signed by tiie Principal of the school or schools of 
which he has been a member, and specifying the age of the candidate, 
the Common Schools of the city which he has attended, the length of time 
in each, and when. If the number qualified for admission be more than 
can be admitted, the preference is given to those who have attended the 
Common Schools the greater period. 

At either of the regular examinations, members may be admitted to one 
or all of the classes, to pursue the studies of any one or more depart- 
ments, provided they shall have attended the Common Schools the re- 
quisite period — shall be of the proper age — shall pass the proper examina- 
tion in the requisites for admission, aud also an examination satisfactory 
to the Faculty, in the previous studies of the class or departments to 
which they are to be admitted. 

No person is allowed to be present at the examination, except the in- 
structors in the Academy, and members of the Board of Education, and 
other school oflBcers ; neither are the names of the candidates, nor the 
scliools from which they come, made known to the instructors conducting 
the examinations, but each candidate is designated during examination 
by a number given to him on a card, by the Principal. Only the names of 
such as have passed a good examination are afterwards ascertained, in 
(y-der to be inscribed on the rolls of the Academy. 

Students are not allowed to reside or board in the Academy ; they re- 
side or board with their parents or guardians. By removing from the 
city, they forfeit their right to remain in the institution. 

Graduates may become resident graduates, and continue their studies 
at option. 

DISCIPLINE. 

The discipline of the Academy is mild, persuasive, and just, but steady, 
strict, and unyielding. The law on this point is clear and explicit. 

" Every student," it says, " shall conduct himself according to the rules 
of good manners, good morals, and manly propriety ; shall give punctual 
and constant attendance to all his duties ; shall use the property of the 
iustitution with care and economy, and restore the same when required." 

The punishment inflicted in the Academy are demerit marks, private 
admonition, admonition by the Principal in presence of the Section and 
of the Instructor in the recitation-room, suspension bj^ the direction of 
the Principal, public admonition by the Principal in presence of all the 
students at roll-call, final admonition by the Principal in a meeting of the 
Faculty, and dismission for misconduct, to be directed by a vote of the 
Faculty. 

Every violation of the rules is recorded in the Book of Discipline, to- 
gether with the degree of punishment inflicted, and the amount of de- 
merits received. No student is demerited without receiving notice of the 
fact and the cause. 



247 

Every student admitted into the Academy receives a certificate there- 
of, stating that on leaving the institution with a good character, after one 
year, he shall receive another certificate or diploma, stating the period he 
has been in the Academy, and the studies there pursued by him ; and, 
provided he shall have satisfactorily accounted for all the books and other 
property committed to him, and shall have maintained a good character, 
he shall, on so leaving the Academy, receive such diploma ; but no student 
shall receive a certificate of dismission if he be dismissed for misconduct ; 
and, ill each certificate, it shall be stated that he is furnished with a state- 
ment of his standing in the Academy, as it shall appear on the records 
during his whole connection with the Academy.

EOEMATION OF WARDS. 

In 16S3, the city of New York was divided into six wards, under the 
designation of " South," " Dock," " East," " North," " West," and 
" Out " Wards ; for map showing the boundaries of these wards, see page 
212 of Manual of the Common Council for 1848. 

The Montgomerie Charter, dated January 15th, 1730, designates, in ad- 
dition to the above, the boundaries of the " Montgomerie " Ward. 

By an act of the colonial government, passed February 28th, 1791, the 
wards are designated numerically from 1 to 7, and the bounds of each de- 
scribed. 

By an act of the Legislature, passed March 8th, 1803, the wards are in- 
creased to nine, numerically designated, and boundaries described. 

The Tenth ward was erected from the Seventh, by act of March 18th, 



451 



The Eleventh and Twelfth wards were formed, and the boundaries of all 
described, by an act passed April 25th, 1825. (Chap. 195, Laws of 1825). 
13th ward was erected from the 10th ward. Act April 6, 1827.

THE BATTERY. 

J- HE south point of the island, in its natural condition, extended 
to about the present line of State street ; and its condition, after 
the town had been settled by families about thirty years, is shown by 
the following sketch, taken from a drawing made in 1656. 




KKSENT BAITERY, IN 1656. 



The present inclosure is all beyond the original water-line, and 
the early condition of the adjacent lands is not strictly within 
the limits of a description of the improvements in that section ; hut 



)00 



it may be mentioned that tlio )noHt notable improvement adjacent 
to the present Battery was the erection of a private mansion Ly Gov- 
ernor Stuyvesant in the year 1658. This was designed for his private 
residence, and was considered in its time as the principal effort made 
by private enterprise towards beautifying the city. 




GOV. stuyvesant's house, erected 



AFTERWAEDS CALLED " THE WHITEHALL. 



In the Dutch records the following mention is made of this build- 
ing : 

Thursday, 14th February, 1658. " The Heer Nicasius De Sille and 
the Heer Peter Tonneman handed the Heeren Burgomasters a certain 
petition from the Heer Director-General, reading as follows : 



" To the Right Honorable Lords Councillors of N". Netherland, and the 
W. Burgomasters of the City Amsterdam therein : 
' ' Petrus Stuyvesant, your Honors' petitioner, represents in due form 
to the Lords Councillors, to whom it appertains to gi-ant the patent, 
also to the Burgomasters, to whom the conveyance of lots is surren- 
dered, that he, as your Honors are aware, fenced, dammed, and raised 



501 

up, at great cost and labor, out of the water and swamp, certain 
abandoned lots, granted in the year 1647, by the Heer Kieft, your pe- 
titioner's predecessor in quality as Director-General, to one Jan Pie- 
tcrsen. and conveyed by him or his attorney to one Thomas Baxter, 
a bankrupt and fugitive from this province, in consequence of great 
indebtedness, and who, during the troubles with the English, like- 
wise plundered divers of the inhabitants of this province ; on which 
lot, now that about eight or nine thousand loads of sand are ridden 
(and even then it is not high enough), the petitioner has erected an 
expensive and handsome building." Petitioner requests a confirma- 
tion of his title. 

To this the Burgomasters replied as follows : " Whereas, the Di- 
rector-General and Council have been pleased to grant to the city all 
vacant and ungrauted lots, and the Heer General has ornamented the 
place described with a handsome building, and requests due convey- 
ance, we cannot refuse it, but approve it and laud it. ' ' 

In October, 1693 (war then existing with France), the Common 
Council were called upon, by Governor Fletcher, to furnish eighty-six 
cords of stockadoes, twelve feet in length, for the purpose of building 
a battery " on the point of rocks imder the fort ;" in pursiiance of 
which, the Mayor issued his proclamation, requiring the Aldermen 
of the country wards ' ' to call together all and every the respective 
inhabitants of the Out "Ward, and of Manning's and Barn's Islands," 
with a view to agree upon the terms of furnishing the stockadoes. A 
bargain was made with several of those inhabitants, and their ' ' com- 
panies," to supply them. 

The question of paying for these articles, however trifling the 
amount may seem at the present day, produced a very considerable 
discussion, which is to be ascribed, no doubt, to the state of political 
excitement arising out of the " Leislerian troubles," which then 
raged rampant in the whole body politic. Probably there were 
many, both in and out of authority, who would willingly have co- 
operated to subject the country to French or any other rule, if it 
had not been for the perils of treasonable acts. 

Upon the report of the Aldermen having in charge the matter of fur- 
nishing stockadoes, stating the price at which they could be furnished 
(something over fifty pounds), a n^ajority of the Common Council 
objected that it would be necessaiy to raise a tax for the expense, 
and that the charter did not give the city authority for that purpose. 
Upon this the Common Council were summoned to attend the Gov- 
ernor, in Council, and there the same objection was made. Insinua- 



502 

tions appear to have betai thrown out against the loyalty of the city 
authorities ; and after a somewiiat excited conference, the Common 
Council returned to the City Hall, and it was resolved, " by a majority 
of votes, that the cutting and paying for the stockadoes for the 
building of a platform on the point of rocks, for the defense of the 
city, is not a county charge, but, nemine contra dicente, the Board are of 
opinion that the said platform is a necessary work." 

They subsequently resolved, that the easiest way of raising funds, 
to pay for the stockadoes, will be by a tax on the inhabitants, which 
they were willing to lay, if the Governor and Council declare in 
writing that the Common Council is enabled to do so by virtue of 
their charter. Protesting their loyalty, they drew up a formal de- 
mand that the Governor and Council render a written opinion and 
judgment upou the powers of the Common Council in that respect. 
To this an answer was given, as follows : " His Excellency and the 
Council are of opinion that it is a power natural to every body 
politic, by the very act of incorporation, to do all those reasonable 
acts that are necessary for the continuance of their being, and ac- 
cordingly, to impose a tax, or other levy, on the respective members 
of such body, for the carrying on and effecting all such matters the 
representatives of a corporation judge necessary for the good and 
advantage of the body politic, be it for its civil defense or otherwise, 
and that it is lawful for any private corporation to raise money upon 
its respective members, according to the proportion of their interest 
in the same, for its military defense, whenever the government 
under which it has its being is pleased to give leave." 

The magistrates, having no further excuse, ordered a levy of 3d.- 
on the pound towards the object indicated. 

In November, 1734, a bill being before the General Assembly 
"for erecting a battery on Capsey Eocks," under the authority of the 
Colonial Government, a clause was inserted, with the consent of the 
City Government, as follows: "To the end that when the battery 
shall be so built, it may not be rendered useless, by buildings which 
may blind and encumber the same, be it enacted that no houses or 
edifices shall be built on the river, or on parts which overflow with 
water, between the west part of the battery, or Capsey Eocks, to Ells 
Corner, on the Hudson Eiver" (present Marketfield street). 

The following engraving shows the appearance of the Battery 
about the year 1746. 



503 




THE BATTERY IN 1746. 

The Battery was used exclusively for military purposes until after 
the Revolution. About the year 1692, measures were taken for 
filling up, inclosing, and adorning the place as a public park, to 
which purpose it has been devoted since that period. 



EJECTION OF PUBLIC MAEKETS. 

The following extracts from the records indicate the measures 
taken towards the establishment of public markets. 

A temporary shambles, having a block in it for the convenience of 
country people bringing meat to sell in the city, was erected prior to 
1658. 

April, 1659, the Burgomasters resolved *■' to erect a meat market, 
and cover it with tiles, to have a block brought therein, and to leave 
the key with Andries the baker, who shall have temporary charge 



504 

thereof." nie location of this market was in the green, in front of 
the fort (now Bowling Green). 

It was further resolved, that " tlie market for live cattle shall be 
beside the churchyard (Broadway, west side, above Moriis street), 
where some stakes shall be fixed." 

In January, 1G60, a general cattle fair was provided for, and publi- 
cation made thereof, as follows : " Be it known to all persons, that 
the Burgomasters of the city of New Amsterdam, in New Netherland, 
intend to open a market in said city, for store and fat cattle, steers, 
cows, sheep, goats, hogs, bucks, and such like, and, to that end, stalls 
shall be built. Said market shall be opened on the 20th of October 
and end on the last day of November in each year, during which 
time it shall remain a free market, and no stranger shall then be lia- 
ble to arrest. ' ' 

January, 1677 — " Whereas, a weekly market in this city has been 
thought necessary for the convenience of the inhabitants, for which 
purpose a suitable house is now being built by the water-side, near 
the bridge and weigh-house, it is hereby made known to all, that said 
market shall begin on the 24th day of March next, and so continue 
every Saturday following for three years." 

On the expiration of those three years, the market day was changed 
to Wednesday, and the market was continued for three years longer. 

In 1683, three market days in each week were established, viz. : 
on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. 

In 1684, the market was removed from its former location (foot of 
Whitehall street) to the green in front of the fort. The old market- 
house was let as a place of storage for merchants' goods landed at 
the dock. The market-place in front of the fort was, for several 
years, the only one authorized for the sale of meat in the city. A 
resolution was passed to that effect as late as the spring of 1691, but 
in the course of that year it was ordered that there be two markets 
for flesh kept in the city, viz. : one on Broadway, opposite the fort, 
and the other under the trees by the slip (present Hanover square). 

It was further ordered, at that time, that fish be brought for sale 
to the dock opposite the City Hall, or "the house that long Mary 
formerly lived in ; likewise herbs, fruits, roots, &c." 

Some idea of the kind of building used for the principal market at 
that period may be infeiTed from an order made in 1694, that." the 
market-house or shed in Broadway be let to Henry Crossly, butcher, 
for seven years, at one pound per annum, he to keep it in good 
repair. ' ' 

The suliject of improving the character of these edifices was agitat- 



505 

ed about this pericxl, aiul^ plan was adopted by which the city was 
saved the expense of erecting the necessary buildings. This was by 
the inhabitants of different sections of the city, adjacent to the pro- 
I)osed market, contributing the fund for its erection, the building to 
be maintained and kept in repair by the neighbors, a certain rent to 
be paid to the city, and the building to revert to the city after a long 
term of lease, in some cases extending to fifty years. In this manner 
a two-story building, constructed of stone, was erected at the foot of 
Broad street, in the year 1701), by the inhabitants of the South Ward. 
Two others were constructed, upon the same system, about the same 
time— one at Burger's path (Hanover square), and another at the foot 
of Maiden lane. 

The old market-house in Broadway was, however, still standing, 
as we find it was let for five years from the year 1702. 

On the same system of constructing markets by private subscrip- 
tion of the neighborhood, a market was erected in 1706 by the in- 
habitants of Queen street. This was situated at the foot of Maiden 
lane, and was long known as " the Fly Market." 

In 1709 a market was permitted to be erected at the foot of Wall 
street. This market was afterwards (1726) approiiriated, for a time, 
exclusively for the sale of corn and meal, and was hence commonly 
known as the Meal Market. It was also the established place where 
" slaves stood for sale or to be let to hire." 

A new system for governing public markets was established in the 
year 1735, by an ordinance which recited, that— whereas, the markets 
of the city were chiefly supplied by country people with victuals 
and provisions, by water carriage, as the tide and wind permitted, 
by reason whereof no particular times or days could conveniently 
be appointed for holding said markets, it was ordered that thei-eafter 
every day in the week (Sundays excepted) be appointed public 
market days, from sunrise to sunset, when country people might 
resort in the markets then named, viz. : at the market-house at the 
slip, commonly called Coenties Dock (Coenties slip) ; at the mar- 
ket-house at the old slip, commonly called Burgher's Path (now Old 
slip) ; at the market house at the lower end of Wall street ; and at 
the market-house at Countess Key (present Maiden lane). 

A Standing Committee of the Common Council was appointed, to 
have full charge of the markets, and to contract for letting stalls to 
butchers. 

Under this arrangement, the seven stalls at the Old slip market 
were let for an aggregate of forty-six pounds, and those of Fly 
Market (seven stalls) were let for twenty -nine pounds per annum.

MEAT, AND SLAVE MARKET, FOOT OF WALL STREET, 1746. 



In 1738, the market occiipying the centre of Broadway, near 
Maiden lane, long known as the Oswego market, was erected. A pe- 
tition was presented in April of that year, by the inhabitants of the 
West Ward (which was on the North Eiver side of the city), stating 
that most of the inhabitants of that section lived at a great distance 
from any of the public markets ; and as there were country people 
who came from Hackensack, Tappaan, and other places up the North 
River, they asked leave to erect a market-house forty-two feet in 
length and twenty-five feet in width, in the middle of Broadway, 
' ' fronting the street in which the Chief Justice lives' ' (probably 
Maiden lane), " and opposite to Crown street" (now Liberty street). 
This petition being considered, and "the place being found conve- 
nient," it was granted. In 1746, twenty-one feet were added to the 
south end of this market. 

At about the same time that the market was erected in the middle 
of Broadway, another was built in the middle of Broad street, by the 
inhabitants of the Dock Ward. This was situated near the present 
Exchange place . But it was not of so long duration as its rival in 
Broadway . 



507 

In 1742, the system of leasing out all the stalls ua the markets to 
one lessee, to be by him sub-let, was adopted. Under this system, 
the city realized, in 1743, £98 ; in 1744, £105; in 1753, £151 ; in 
1760, £245. 

Oswego Market, in Broadway, enjoyed a prosperous existence for 
over thirty years ; but the increasing population of the city, and the 
amount of travel, rendered it a great public inconvenience, occupy- 
ing, as it did, a great portion of the width of one of the principal 
streets. Its continuance had been opposed by an influential class of 
citizens during many years, but unsuccessfully, inasmuch as business 
interests had grown up around the locality, which would be greatly 
aft'octed by the removal of the market, and a strong party advocated 
its continuance. 

In 1771, however, the building was presented by the Grand Jury as a 
nuisance. In their indictment, they state that the building was, at that 
period, one hundred and fifty-six feet long, and twenty-feet three and a 
half inches wide. The Common Council resolved to traverse the indict- 
ment, and maintain the market, and applied to James Duane, Esq., 
to act as counsel in that behalf; but this gentleman declined . They 
then sought to engage Samuel Jones, Esq. , who asked time to con- 
sider, and finally gave his opinion that the indictment could not be 
successfully defended, and advised that the building be taken down. 
This, however, the Corporation refused to do, and concluded to let 
the Court act as it thought proper. 

Longer reflection, however, produced a modified state of feeling, 
and projects for a new location were brought under consideration. 
The three localities which received the strongest support were the 
Fields or Commons (present Park), Mesier's dock, on the North 
River (at which a small market had been previously built by private 
subscription), the foot of Dey street, and the Corporation lots foot 
of Vesey street. The question on the ' ' Fields' ' was negatived in 
the Common Council by a vote of four to eleven. The Dey street 
locality was also lost by a vote of one to fourteen. The question 
being then reduced to Mesier's dock and the Corporation lots, the 
former received six votes, the latter nine. The locality chosen is the 
present site of Washington Market. The size of the building adopted 
was one hundred and sixty-six feet long and twenty-eight feet wide. 

In order to render our account of the erection of markets full up 
to the time of the Revolution, it may be mentioned that in addition 
to those before named, leave was given in 1763 to William Walton 
and others to erect a market at Peck slip. 



508 



THE GREAT DOCK, 



As tlio \M\ri of tlio city earliest populated, and where the principal 
trade was carried on, was that along the shore of the East River, 
or the "Roadstead," as it was called, it was natural that the 
attention of the authorities should he directed towards its improve- 
ment at an early period ; and the progressive character of tlieir 
labors in that direction will be treated upon in the order in which 
the several projects for that purpose were brought into action. 

Before the city was granted a municipal government (which was in 
the year 1653), no improvement or alteration of the natural condition 
of the shore was made whatever, except the construction of a small 
wharf for the landing of row-boats. The precise locality of that 
wharf was on the present site of Moore street. Between that place 
and the southerly point of the island was a beach, commonly called 
' ' the Strand, ' ' having a number of large rocks exposed at low 
water. 




THE POSmON OP THE ORIGINAL WHARF, FROM MAP, 1601. 

In 1653 the Government granted to the city liberty to erect a 
weigh-scales at the wharf, with power to make regulations as to the 
weighing of goods, and also as to the sealing and stamping of weights 
and measures, the profits of which were to accrue to the city ; and 
after this period improvements began to be made in that vicinity. 

In July, 1659, the city magistrates published a placard, to the'fol- 
lowing effect — that, ' ' whereas, the Burgomasters and Schepens have 
received from the Director-General and Councillors authority to take 
from traders and skippers, for the erection of a pier and the benefit 
thereof, eight stuyvers per last for loading and discharging at the 
aforesaid pier, and for less quantities in proportion, of which the 
skippers shall pay one-third and the owners of the goods two-thirds ; 
therefore all such persons are required to pay their quota to the 
proper officer. ' ' 



509 



With the funds thvis provided, the pier was extended, in the year 
1659. It was commonly called, in the language of that day, the 
" Hooft." In the following year, it was still further extended by an 
addition of four rods ; for which labor the contractor received 225 
guilders ($100) and a half-barrel of beer. 

A curious proposition is found in connection with the ' ' hooft ' ' 
fees, which seems to indicate that it was contemplated at the time to 
surround the city with a stone wall, after the manner of the fortified 
towns of the middle ages in Europe. In October, 1661, it was pro- 
posed by the city magistrates, that, "whereas, the yachts trading 
' op en aff ' (off and on) are indebted for wharfage which they are 
equally liable to pay as well as the ships," it was proposed to ask the 
Director-General to order them,-in lieu of wharfage, to go, each of 
them, one or two voyages to Tappaan, and bring thence full loads of 
stone, in order to surround the city, in course of time, with a wall. 
By the year 1667, it would appear that still further improvements 
had been made to the wharf, as it is recited that, ' ' whereas, the 
city has been at very great expense in renewing and repairing the 
pier, that the rates of wharfage be established as follows : 

" On goods landed from ships, five stuyvers per last. 

' ' On goods placed there to be shipped — for each hogshead of tobacco 
or sugar, two stuyvers ; for furs and peltries of one hundred beavers 
in value, twenty stuyvers ; for dye woods, twelve stuyvers per ton." 

A view of the easterly side of the city, about the year 1667, shows 
the form of the dock, as follows : 




THE DOCK AND RFVER FRONT TO WALL STREET, 1667. 



In the year 1675-6, it was proposed to build a new dock, embrac- 
ing a large inclosure, and extending up to the City Hall. This was 



510 

a mcasuic ii>vc>lvin<;; considerable expense, the niciius to defray which 
were found partly in the sales of lots adjacent, and partly in the col- 
lection of whai-fage. £180 were levied on transient traders to this 
port ; and a permanent regulation, as to rates of wharfage, was 
established, whereby an anchorage fee was charged for vessels lying 
in the roads and landing their goods on the wharf ; and for small 
vessels lying within the dock, rates of dockage were charged, propor- 
tionable to the size of the vessels. This dock appears to have been 
completed about the year 1683. 

In the year 1687, fourteen lots were sold, producing the sum of 
four hundred and seventy pounds, and the surveyors were ordered to 
survey tills ground, " lying in and near the dock, beginning from the 
weigh-house (present Moore street) to the City Hall, and to lay the 
same out in lots, eighty in depth, unto the dock, and about twenty- 
four feet wide, leaving sufficient space for the street." They were 
also instructed to lay out a street on a range with and as an extension 
of the Heere graft, with a convenient inlet in the middle, for the 
water to flow up to the channel of the graft. The street to be made 
along the new lots was, in 1687, ordered to be called the Dock street 
(now Water street). 

As an indication of the extent of the shipping and boating interest 
belongmg to this jiort at the time of the construction of the dock, it 
may be mentioned that a return of such vessels, made in 1683, showed 
that there were three barks, three brigantines, twenty-six sloops, and 
forty-eight open boats. 

The purchasers of the lots before mentioned were required "to 
build a good and substantial stone wall, three and a half feet broad 
at the bottom, and to batter one foot inward on the outside, and to 
defend the same from rubbing of boats by driving spiles or stockadoes 
at every five feet distance, to be bound together by a plate at the 
top." It was further stipulated they were not to claim any interest 
in the street to be constructed in front of their premises, but the 
same was to remain for the use of the city. 

A plan of the dock, as it existed in 1695, has been given in a map 
of that date, which exhibits it as follows : 



511 




THE DOCK IN 1695. 

The circumstance of this extension of building lots into the land 
naturally covered by water, is notable from its being the first of the 
gradual series of improvements afterwards made of that character. 
The particular limits of the lots so granted are shown upon the map ; 
but, it may be added, that they embraced the present two blocks, 
one bounded by Moore, Pearl, Broad and Water streets, and the 
other bounded by Broad, Pearl and Water streets and Coenties slip. 

On the shore opposite the City Hall was constructed a battery of 
five guns, and in the open space between that and the City Hall, in 
addition to the gallows (erected in 1660), in 1691 a cage, pillory, and 
stocks were added, and upon the wharf near by a ducking-stool was 
constructed ; all these means of punishment being common in those 
days. In the year 1700, all of the dock west of the ' ' bridge' ' or 
pier which extended into the dock, was ordered to be filled up. 

In 1703, the dock was leased to John Ellison, at a rent of one 
pepper-corn for the first three years, and twenty-five pounds per 
annum for the last six years, he agreeing to build up the sides of the 
canal in Broad street, as far as the Fish Bridge. 

In 1721, a Committee was appointed " to erect a substantial wharf 
on the west side of the dock, as far into the river as conveniently 
may be done between the dock and Whitehall." In 1731, the pier 
erected ten years previously, extending from the dock into the river, 
was extended one hundred feet further into the river, and formed one 
side of another dock, the old one having been nearly all obliterated 
by the march of improvements. Along Dock street, storehouses were 



512 



eroctcd, of a superior character. The vacant place west of the dock, 
whicli liad laid open for many years, was proposed, about the date 
last mentioned, to he sold, in order that improvements mif^ht he 
made. Opposition to this had always been made by the inhabitants 
of the old " niarkvelt" fronting the vacant space, for the reason that 
to build upon the land would obstruct the ' ' delight and advantage 
of the prospect ;" and they also urged that the range of the guns on 
the south-east bastion of the fort would be impaired. This was a 
new question in the history of the city, for it was thought reason- 
able by many that the objections of those whose " delight" in the 
water prospect was to be taken away without their consent, were 
worthy of consideration. They did not avail, however, and the va- 
cant ground was divided into seven lots, and sold at auction, pro- 
ducing the sum of thirteen hundred and forty-four pounds. It may 
be mentioned here that Jacob Leisler, a son of the patriot of that 
name, was one of the objectors, and probably was a merchant re- 
siding and doing business on the same premises occupied by his 
father fifty years previously. 








VIEW OF THE GREAT DOCK, 1746. 



Tlie above view exhibits the appearance of the dock and adjacent 
buildings in the year 1746. 



513 



It is unnecessary to pursue the history of the dock further with 
any minuteness. It soon began to lose its importance, from tlie 
erection of piers along tlie shore, east of it, by private individuals. 
The "Albany pier" built by Van Cortland, now forming the west 
side of Coenties slip, commenced at the outward part of the dock, 
and extended far out into the river ; and on the west side of the dock 
the present Moore street was extended, as far as the present Front 
street, and the block between Front, Water, Whitehall and Moore 
streets was built up before the Revolutionary War. Still, at that 
period, the old dock still continued in existence, and occupied the 
blocks bounded by the present Water, Front and Moore streets, and 
Coenties slip. It was filled up soon after the Kevolutionary War. 



THE HEERE GKAFT. 

A natural rivulet led from a swamp through the centre of the pre- 
sent Broad street, which at first was dug out, and made into the 
" Ditch," so called at that day. About the year 1657 it was resolved 
to plank the sides of the ditch, and make what was known in 
the old country as a " graft" or canal. The Burgomasters employed 
three laborers upon this work, who are found to have been at work 
in February, 1658. It seems to have been, at least in part, complet- 
ed in the course of that year, as in March, 1659, the Under Sheriff 
was ordered ' ' to take good care and superintendence on the newly- 
constructed graft, that no filth be cast into it ; and also, that the 
l)oats, canoes, and skifl^s be placed in regular order therein." 

The means of payment for this public improvement next engaged 
the attention of the authorities, and was the cause of not a little 
embarrassment. 

At a final rendering of the accounts of the superintendents, in 
February, 1660, it appeared that the total expense incurred was about 
2,800 guilders ; and it was resolved by the Burgomasters to assess the 
amount upon the residents on the sides of the street. Commencing 
on the west side, at the river, they assessed up to the present Beaver 
street, as follows : 

Rods. Feet.

The amount vrhich each of these individuals was called on to pay 
was about 40 guilders ($16) per rod, for the fronts owned by them, 
and a great uproar was occasioned thereby. In June, 1660, the ma- 
gistrates resolved to resort to severe proceedings, and notified all in 
default to appear before them. 

Hendrick Willemsen, the baker, declared that he was profited 
nothing by the improvement, and refused to pay, whereupon he was 
ordered to the prison chamber. 

Hans Dreper, living on the river shore, and having to sheet the 
front as well as the side, his assessment was reduced. 

Jochem Beekman knew no reason why he should be taxed ; was 
informed that it was even so, notwithstanding. Then, " Do what you 
may," he replied. He was ordered to the prison chamber. 

Other objections of similar nature were made by various parties 
concerned, and finally the magistrates concluded to relieve the delin- 
quents for the present. A part was taken in installments ; the Pro- 
vincial Government contributed 1,000 guilders, and the expense was 
finally defrayed. 

In 1671, the canal was extended above its former limits, to near 
the present Exchange place, and the old graft was improved, under 
the following order : 



515 



The residents along the graft are ordered to make it as fol- 
lows : 

1. From the water-side to the bridge opposite Stone street, in the 
same breadth and form as it was made before . 

2. From the bridge to the corner of the lot of Jochem Beekman 
(Beaver street), to be finished in the same manner as Johannes 
Depeyster has already begun before his lot. 

3. From tlie corner of Jochem Beekman to the corner of the lane 
at Jacob Kips, in the same form as the old graft. 

An illustrative view of the Graft is given, as more readily suggest- 
ive of its appearance in that day. 




VIEW OF THE " GRAFT," OR CANAL, IX BROAD STREET, AND TIIE FISH BRIDGE, 1669. 



In May, 1676, it was ordered that " all the inhabitants living on 
the street called the Heere graft, shall, without delay, fill up the graft 
and make the same level with the street, and then to pave and pitch 
the same with stone." 

Thus was one of the old landmarks which characterized the city 
under the enterprise of the Dutch rulers destroyed. The "graft" 



516 

was, no doubt, necessary to the proper drainage of the section iu 
wliich it was constructed, inasmuch as a swamp which received the 
waters from surrounding hills, occupied the upper part of Broad 
street, when iu its natural condition. Even after the lapse of twenty 
years after the filling up of the graft, inconvenience from bad 
di-ainage is found to have existed ; and in May, 1G96, on a petition of 
the residents on the street, the subject of constructing a sewer was 
considered, and referred to a committee for examination. In June 
of that year, the committee reported that they had taken the di- 
mensions of the street through which it was proposed to construct 
the sewer, and found it to be "in length, from the corner of Mr. 
LeBoyteaux" (present Water street) "to the upper well, by Mrs. 
Van Vleck's" (Exchange place), "eleven hundred and fifty-eight 
feet," and computed the cost at fifteen shillings (English) per 
foot. 

It seems, however, that to enable the City Corporation to carry 
out this measure, an act of the General Assembly was considered 
necessary, which was passed ; and in 1703, upon another petition of 
the inhabitants of that section of the city, the construction of the 
work was completed. The extent to which this sewer ran up Broad 
street does not appear in the records, but it is always described as 
' ' the common sewer, at the lower end of Broad street. ' ' Cartmen 
were prohibited from driving across it, under a severe penalty. The 
sewer, as originally constructed, emptied into the " gi-eat dock," but 
in 1717 it was ordered that " it be carried through the dock to the 
outside thereof, so that it may empty itself into the river, and that 
a good and substantial bridge be made over said common sewer, from 
the market-house fronting the dock to the dock's mouth, and that 
there be an entrance-way into the dock on each side of the common 
sewer. ' ' 

The original sewer through Broad street was probably constructed 
of wood, and it seems that the inhabitants along the street were 
generally under the necessity of making lateral drains, in order to 
relieve their cellars from water. In 1745, it was ordered that "the 
common sewer, at the lower end of Broad street, be newly built with 
stone." 

In 1765, a petition of the inhabitants of Broad and Beaver streets 
stated that the common drains through those streets were decayed 
and useless, and asked that new drains be constructed.

PUBLIC EOADS. 

KOAD TO HARLEM. 

Tlie Harlem Flats, which were considered a desirable agricultural 
section, were granted in farms at an early period ; but the road 
thereto was a very poor one, as will be seen from the following meas- 
ures for its improvement : 

April, 1671 : Whereas, the road between this city and the village of 
New Harlem is impassable, and it is necessary a road should be main- 
tained, it is ordered that the overseers of roads and the magistrates 
of Harlem lay out a suitable road, and that it be made by the inhab- 
itants of Harlem, in conjunction with those living on the other side 
of Fresh Water (Collect Pond), each within their respective limits. 

February, 1672 : Whereas, the road to New Harlem is still unfin- 
ished, and many complaints have been made, even that people lately 
wishing to travel over that road on horseback have been in danger 
of losing their lives by the bad condition of the road, therefore over- 
seers are appointed to urge the inhabitants to go on with the work, 
and to impose fijies for neglect. 

In 1673, instructions were given to the overseers of fences, from 
which it appears that the road previously ordered had been finished ; 
and inasmuch as it was foimd that much of the land along it lies 
within one fence, and without partition fences between the several 
owners, it was ordered that cattle should not be pastured on such 
lands until the crops be removed. 

From the olden time a bridge had existed crossing "the Fresh 
Water, ' ' by which name the brook which emptied the waters of the 
Collect Pond into the East Eiver (north of present Pearl street) was 
known. This bridge was made anew in 1695, at a cost of one pound 
sixteen shillings. 

In 1707, in pursuance of an act of Assembly, commissioners for 
laying out highways reported the plan of the road to Harlem, as fol- 
lows : 

To begin at the Spring Garden gate (Broadway, near Fulton street), 
to the Fresh Water, the course being east by north ; thence, by a 
small turning, to the tree in the highway upon the hijl (head of Chat- 
ham square), so along the lane (Bowery) to the furthermost house in 
the same, the course being about north-north-east. 

From the said last house the road to run along the fence upon the 
right hand, as the road now lies, to Kip's Runs (the brook emptying 
23 



518 

into Kip's Bay). From thence nortli-north-east, to the bridge beyond 
the hill ; from thence to the comer of Turtle Bay farm, to the top of 
the next hill, about cast-north-east; from thence to the Sawkill 
bridge, north-cast a little northerly ; from Sawkill bridge along Mr. 
Codrington's fence to the half-way house, about north-east ; from 
the bridge by the half-way house, the road to turn to the right 
hand, and so over the creek to Harlem. There was no bridge over 
Harlem River until about the time of the Revolutionary War. The 
high road or Great Post-road to Boston crossed at the King's bridge, 
which was erected about the year 1690, by Frederick Philipse, the 
proprietor of Philipse manor. In 1774. Col. Lewis Morris represented 
to the City Corporation that the existing post-road between this city 
and East Chester was twenty miles in length, and passed over many 
high and steep hills ; that the road, by way of Harlem, through 
Morrisania and Westchester, would be less than sixteen miles, and 
comparatively level, and that he and his neighbors in Westchester 
county would give land for the road ; it would be desirable, how- 
ever, to build a bridge over the Harlem River, and he asked consent 
of the Common Covmcil for that purpose ; which, was granted. 

KINGSBRIDGE EGAD. 

This was an ancient road, and was the post-road for New England. 
It was re-surveyed in 1707, and new courses in some places were laid 
down. Its direction was the same as that mentioned for the Harlem 
road up to the half-way house ; ' ' from thence it runs along the lane 
to the next hollow, about north ; from thence to Meyer's, north- 
east, and thence to the run by Barent Maldron's, north -north-east ; 
from thence along the fence, and so by John Kierse's house, on the 
right hand, and so along as the road now lies, leaving the run of water 
on the left hand, until you come to the deep bridge ; from thence along 
the foot of the hill, which is to the left about half a mile, then turning 
to the left, and leaving the swamp on the right hand, as the road now 
is, untoNagel and Dyckman's farm ; from thence, as the way now lies, 
leaving the fence on the west hand, through the ground of the said 
Nagel and Dyckman, by the house where the said Dyckman doth now 
live, and over his bridge, and so forward, as the road now is, unto 
Kingsbridge, the main course being north, a little easterly." 

THE BLOOMINGDALE EOAD. 

This road was also laid down in 1707, by the following description : 
" From the house at the end of New York lane (present Bowery), 



519 

there is likewise to be a road, turning to the left hand, the course 
being northerly, and so by Great Kills, and forward, as the road now 
lies, unto Tunis Edis's and Captain De Kay's, through said Edis's 
land." 

In 1760, a road leading from Greenwich, to intersect the Bloom- 
ingdale road, was surveyed and established. This road was laid out 
four rods'in width, and was constructed at the expense of the Corpo- 
ration. It led past Captain Clarke's large mansion, called Chelsea. 

THE MONUMENT ROAD. 

The road commonly called by this name in the middle of the 
last century, was also established at a very early period, in the 
times of the Dutch. It led to Sapocanican, afterwards called Green- 
wich. Its description in the survey of 1707 is as follows : "From 
Rebecca's house, in New York lane (Boweiy), there is to be a road, 
as it now lies, unto Greenwich, the said road running to the left- 
ward of the house late of Captain Douwe, deceased. ' ' 

THE GREENWICH ROAD. 

The river road leading to Greenwich is not mentioned in the sur- 
vey of roads in 1707, and probably did not exist previous to the 
year 1730, at which time improvements along the river shore, north 
of the swamp at Canal street, began to be made. It is found to have 
existed in 1760. It lay upon the line of the present Greenwich 
street. 



CITY FORTIFICATIONS. 

In expectation of a war with the people of New England, and of 
an assault upon the city, the authorities, in consideration that the 
fortress was not sufficient for the defense of the inhabitants and the 
protection of the houses, resolved it to be necessary ' ' to inclose the 
greatest part of the city with upright palisades and small breast- 
works, so that, in case of necessity, all the inhabitants may retire 
within the inclosure, and, as far as possible, defend themselves and 
their property against attack." 

This resolution was made on the 10th of March, 1653, and, for the 



520 

purpose of raising funds, several of the principal inhabitants were 
called on for loans. 

The people at once commenced the labor of digging entrenchments, 
all able-bodied men turning out for that purpose. 

But different views were discussed in respect to the character of the 
defenses to be raised in front of the entrenchments. The first plan 
adopted was to erect a line of palisades, and proposals were published 
for estimates, as follows (13th March, 1653) : 

The palisades to be in length 12 feet. 

The palisades to be in diameter 6 feet. 

To be sharpened at tlie top, and placed in a line, close together. 

At every rod a post of seven inches diameter, to which split rails 
should be nailed, at two feet distance from the top of the palisades. 

The length of the whole work to be about 180 rods. 

For this work several offers were made, at about 45 guilders ($18) 
per rod, but they were not deemed satisfactory. The authorities 
offered 25 guilders per rod, and that offer not being accepted, a different 
plan was proposed, which -it was thought would answer the purpose 
and be more economical. The character of this plan (which was 
finally adopted) will be seen from the estimate of the expense then 
made : 

180 rods, or 2,340 feet, will take in length 156 boards or plank ; 9 
boards in height will make 1,404 boards for the whole work, which, 

at 1| guilders each, will amount to 2,106 guilders. 

340 posts will cost 340 " 

Nails , ... 100 

Cartage and freight 120 ' ' 

Carpenters' wages 500 ' ' 

Costing in all 3,166 " 

which, it will be seen, is a saving of about one half less than the plan 
of the palisades. 

On the 20th of March they issued proposals for 300 oak posts, 12 
feet long and 7 inches diameter, to be delivered within fourteen 
days, either on "the strand" or at the "Beaver's path" (foot of 
Battery place). 

The work was then proceeded with, and, in a document dated 
21st July, 1G53, it is said that " tlie citizens have surrounded the 
city on the land side with palisades, and have so far fortified it that 
they have now for three weeks ceased from the work." 



521 



In one of the documents of a late day, it is said : " The walls were 
at first hastily built of sods, and afterwards set off by a curtain of 
planks." The expenses incurred in preparing for this war are stated 
to have amounted to about 7,000 guilders ($2,800), towards which 
the Government made some contributions, in the way of grants of 
several productive franchises to the city. 

In 165G, it was resolved " to erect a large and suitable gate at 
the wall near the East Kiver, according to the plan of Captain 
Coninck." 

This very imperfect defensive work seems, notwithstanding its 
want of durability of structure and its occasional dilapidation from 
age, to have been maintained, probably with some improvements 
(though the character of such, if any there were, does not appear in 
the public records), for nearly twenty years after its first erection. 

After the capture of the city by the English, a proposition was 
made on the part of the city authorities, in consideration ' ' that the 
city is very open and defenseless, that the people be called together 
to consult upon improving the defenses;" but the result of this sug- 
gestion does not appear. 

In 1673, however, on the occasion of the recapture by the Dutch, 
it seems that the walls were renewed in a more substantial manner, 
upon the Governor's recommendation that "the fortifications of the 
city be pi'oceeded with as the engineer shall order and stake out. ' ' 
This new structure was upon the old line along the present Wall 
street ; and the city at that time had grown so considerably, that 
the work was ' ' obstructed by the houses, gardens, and orchards, 
which lie so close under its walls and bulwarks, that it is impossible, 
when requisite, to defend it against its enemies, unless some, at least, 
of said houses, gardens, and orchards be demolished or removed." 
Thereupon an order was made that other lots should be given to the 
owners, upon which they might remove their buildings, and arbitrat- 
ors should be appointed, to settle upon an indemnity for the loss in- 
ciu-red. The "houses, gardens, and orchards" indicated in this order, 
were situated both without and within the walls, but all within a short 
distance from them. The owners of houses thus removed were Ger- 
rit Jansen Eoos, Peter Stoutenberg, Henry Taylor, the Lutheran 
Congregation, Peter Jansen Mesier, Martin Meyer (smith), Augustyn 
Heermans, Lysbet Teysen, Peter Harmensen. The gardens and 
orchards of Johannes Van Brugh and Sarah Kierstede were also 
included. 



522 



For the purpose of raising funds to indemnify these losses, the pro" 
ceeds of an extra impost were allowed to the city, viz. : on exports of 
beavers and peltries, two and a half per cent. ; on imports of duffels 
and blankets, two per cent. ; on imports of powder, lead, guns, 
wines, brandies, distilled water, and rum, five per cent. 

There was no occasion, however, for the use of these defensive 
works, as the city was finally surrendered to the English by treaty 
between England and Holland. 




Trii: BLOCK-HOrSE 



JPT GATIC (foot of PltESKXT WALL STRKICT) , 1674. 



The walls stood for nearly twenty years afterwards, without ma- 
terial alteration, viz., until the year 1692, at which period a war 
existed between Great Britain and France, and measures were taken 
to renew the dilapidated works. 

A committee which had been appointed to survey the works around 
the city, and make an estimate of the expense of repairing them, 
reported that they had had the assistanr^e of some of the militia 



523 



captains, and computed the cost of making necessary repairs at £200, 
exclusive of the cost of " great guns, powder, and shot." 

At this period (1692) all the inhabitants not listed in the train 
bands were required to work on the fortifications, rrnder a penalty. 
Block-houses were erected, as advance works, on the opposite side of 
the valley of the Maiden's path. One of these stood near the Gov- 
ernor's garden, at Broadway and the present Fulton street. Two 
stone bastions were also erected on the line of the walls, one of which 
stood at the present corner of Wall and William streets, and the 
other at the corner of Broadway. These were distinctively called 
' ' Hollandia ' ' and ' ' Zealandia. ' '

GROUND PLAN NEAR THE CITY GATE, ICQS. 



The final demolition of the "city wall," along Wall street, after it 
had existed nearly half a century, occurred at the close of the sev- 
enteenth century. 

In August, 1699, the Common Council petitioned the Governor and 
Council, representing that "the former line of fortification that 
ranged along the Wall street, from the East River to the North Eiver, 
together with the bastions that were thereon erected, are fallen 
to decay, and the encroachments of buildings which have been 
made adjacent thereto will render the same useless for the future ; 
and the city, proposing with all speed to build a new City Hall, at the 
end of one of the principal streets fronting to the aforesaid line of 
fortifications, pray his Excellency that the said fortifications be de- 
molished, according to the powers and authority intrusted to him, and 
that the stones of the bastions, with the consent of the owners 
thereof, may be appropriated to building the said City Hall." 

But other defenses were soon made necessary. In May, 1706, the 



524 

Common Council petitioned the Governor (Cornbury), representing 
' ' the imminent danger we conceive the city to be in from an invasion 
by the common enemy (the French), who, we fear, have committed 
great depredations upon the islands of Nevis, St. Christopher's and 
Montserrat, and the apprehensions we have that they will attempt 
the destruction of this flourishing city and province, which at 
this time are incapable of making a vigorous defense, by reason of 
our fortifications being wholly out of repair, our artillery dismounted, 
and our inhabitants not so completely armed as so great an emergency 
requires ; and we do therefore humbly request that the repairing of 
said fortifications be ordered, and the making of others in convenient 
places." 

It was considered necessary, for the object above indicated, that an 
act of Assembly should be passed, which was accomplished ; and in 
accordance with its provisions the City Government ordered, in July, 
1696, that " whensoever there shall be occasion for making or repair- 
ing the fortificatiofts, the inhabitants on the south side of the Fresh 
Water (Collect Brook), shall be compelled, by themselves or substi- 
tutes, to work on the fortifications by equal turns, the Crier of the 
city to give notice, by beat of drum, when the different sections shall 
be required, at which time each one shall appear with a good spade, 
shovel, axe, or pick-axe, or other necessary tool to labor, as the over- 
seers shall direct." 

The excitement prevalent at this period was strengthened by ad- 
vices from Antigua, received in the same month (July, 1706), that 
" four French privateers are sailed out of Martinique, and also that 
Mons. Deberville, with a strong squadron of ships of war, designs 
speedily to attack this city and province." 

During several years after this period, although no attempt was 
made by the French to assail the city, the inhabitants were kept in 
readiness for labor, by the re-enactment of the law just quoted ; but 
it is probable their active services were not called into requisition. 

In after-time troubles, the Colonial Government, within whose 
functions the subject of public defense properly lay, generally assumed 
the burden of providing for the fortification of the city, and the 
city authorities were relieved, to a great extent, from active par- 
ticipation in measures of this character. 

It may be mentioned, however, that in the war with the French, 
about the middle of the last century, extensive fortifications were 
erected for the defense of the city ; among them was a palisade across 
the city, ranging not far from the present line of Chambers street. 



525 



This work was carried on under the authority of the Colonial Gov- 
ernment. An extensive building for barracks was, however, erected 
by the Corporation on the line of the present Chambers street, north 
of the Park. For this purpose, three thousand five hundred pounds 
were raised by tax, about the year 1757. These barracks were two 
stories high, twenty-one feet wide, and four hundred and twenty feet 
long. It contained twenty rooms on each floor. It continued to be 
used for military purposes until after the Revolutionary War, when, 
having become useless, it was sold at auction. This was called the 
"upper" barracks, in contradistinction to the "lower" barracks, 
which were on the Battery, on a line with the present State street, 
near Whitehall street. 



CLEANING STREETS. 

In the early times of the Dutch, no public orders relating to clean- 
ing the streets appear to have been made, if we except that which 
was promulgated in the year 1658, which recited the too prevalent 
custom of building hog-pens and privies along the streets, with 
openings on the highway, left that the hogs, which roamed the 
public thoroughfares, performing the duty of scavengers, might en- 
ter and consume the filth. Indeed, the city was in existence three- 
fourths of a century, apparently without measures being taken, on 
the part of the public authorities, towards an organized system of 
street cleaning. 

The first mention in the records relating to this subject appears in 
year 1695, in the following words : " Mr. Vanderspeigle, having con- 
sidered concerning cleaning the streets, proposes to undertake, for a 
year from the 1st May, inst., to supervise the cleaning of the streets, 
for the sum of thirty pounds." 

In March, 1699, a committee was appointed to agree with a scav- 
enger for cleaning the streets, and the town-crier was required to 
give notice every Saturday morning to the inhabitants to clean the 
streets and sweep the dirt in heaps before their respective doors. 

In May, 1701, the Assistant Aldermen of the different wards wei'c 

instructed to call on the several inhabitants in their respective wards, 

and ascertain what they are willing to pay towards cleaning the 

streets and carrying away the dirt ; but this method not meeting 

23«> 



.526 



with a proper response on the part of the inhabitants, an order was 
made in the same month that the inhabitants of tlie city, on every 
Friday, sweep the dirt in heaps before their respective premises, in 
order that it be carted away on Saturday by the city cartmen. To 
compensate tiie latter, the inhabitants wore ordci'ed to pay tliem for 
every load three pence, if loaded by the inhabitants themselves ; and 
sixpence, if the cartmen load it. The only street cleaned at public 
expense was Broad street ; to this street much of the dirt was wash- 
ed from other streets, by rains, and it was not considered just to com- 
pel the inhabitants to maintain its cleanliness. A public scavenger 
was appointed for this purpose, who received a salary of about forty 
dollars per annum. 



THE BOWLINU GREEN. 

The Bowline: Green was the first public park established. In 
March, 1733, it was resolved by the Common Council "that the 
piece of land lying at the lower end of Broadway, fronting the fort, 
be leased to some of the inhabitants of Broadway, in order to be in- 
closed to make a Bowling green, with walks therein, for the beauty and 
ornament of the said street, as well as for the recreation and delight 
of the inhabitants of this city, leaving the street, on each side, fifty 
feet wide ;" and in October, of the following year, it was resolved 
that the Bowling Green, as now fenced, be leased to Frederick Phil- 
ipse, John Chambers, and John Roosevelt, for ten years, for a bowling 
green only. These lessees were public-spirited gentlemen, who had 
inclosed the square and engaged to keep it in repair for the public 
enjoyment. 

The establishment of this ornamental park served to improve the 
character of the buildings fronting it on the west side. In May, 
1745, it was ordered that the line of the street in that locality (which 
was irregular) be straightened between the houses of Augustus Jay 
(near Morris street), and the house of Archibald Kennedy (corner of 
Marketfield street), and that Mr. William Smith, who proposed to 
build, and others who might build, conform their lines thereto. 

In 1747, it was ordered that a committee be appointed to have so 
much of the street around the Bowling Green and along the fence 



527 



of the fort paved as they might see proper ; and it is probable that 
no previous paving existed in that locality. 

A few years previous to the Revolution, the Colonial Assembly re- 
solved to procure from England a statue of the King (George III.). 
In 1770, the statue arrived here, and, by consent of the Common 
Council, it was erected in the Bowling Green. This was a period of 
intense excitement in the city, arising out of the political events 
which finally brought about the war. The King was extremely un- 
popular. Although riots were of frequent occurrence, no oppo- 
sition seems to have been made to the erection of this statue, not- 
withstanding its importation was felt to have a political significance. 
After its erection (in May, 1771), the Common Council resolved that, 
' ' Whereas, the General Assembly have been at great expense in 
bringing from England a statue of his Majesty and erecting it on the 
Bowling Green, and the Board considering that, unless said Green be 
fenced in, it will soon become the receptacle of all the filth and dirt 
from the neighborhood, it is ordered that an iron railing be erected 
around the Green, at an expense of eight hundred pounds." 

During the war, the statue, which was of lead, was demolished, 
and run into bullets, for the use of the American forces. 

After the peace, a new iron fence was raised around the Green, and 
it was leased to Chancellor Livingston, who ornamented it, at his 
own expense. 



IMPROVEMENT OF THE EAST RIVER SHORE. 

The City Tavern, built originally by the Government, which was 
afterwards (in 1653) granted to the city for a "^stadt buys," or city 
hall, was erected near the natural shore of the river. 

In November, 1654, the City Government were brought to the con- 
sideration of measures for the general protection of the shore in that 
vicinity, by the application of a carpenter, named Sybout Clasen, 
who resided on the shore west of the Stadt-huys, in which he com- 
plains that he is the only person who has attempted to protect the 
shore in front of his premises from the washing of tides ; and " inas- 
much as the sheet-piling before his house had fallen down during the 
late high water, ' ' he will not repair the same, unless his neighbors 
are required to make the same improvement ; whereupon it was 



52S 



ordered, that " the gardens from the corner of the ditch" (present 
Broad street) "to the City Hall be all planked up by the respective 
owners ;" and at the same time tlie sheeting in front of the City Hall 
was ordered to be made, " in order that the repairs of the City Hall 
may go on ;" and for this purpose " Carel Van Brugh is to be notified 
by the court messenger to let him take from the hill before his lot, 
Ij-ing next the City Hall, as much earth as maybe necessary for fill- 
ing before the City Hall." This is the beginning of an important 
improvement, which occupied then, and subsequently, considerable 
attention, on the part of the city authorities. It was known in the 
language of the time as the " Schoeinge." 

A general plan seems to have been adopted, after a survey by Capt. 
Koninck, and an order was made, about the year 1655, requiring all 
owners between the City Hall (Pearl street, head of Coenties slip) 
and the Water Gate (at the foot of Wall street), to build up sheet- 
piling in front of their premises. The following extracts from the 
minutes of the Burgomasters sufficiently show the progress of the 
work in the year 1656 : 

" 3Iarch, 1656. Ordered, that as the sheet-piling before the City Hall 
is finished, the neighbors be required to finish the same before their 
lots, or it will be done by the city, and they will be assessed therefor. 

''June, 1656. Resolved, Tliat those having charge thereof be ordered 
to complete, with all diligence, the survey of the sheet-piling before 
their houses and lots. 

" September, 1656. Whereas, the sheeting in front of the City Hall 
and before the Water ' poort' (gate) is finished, and is begun in other 
places, and it is deemed expedient, not only for the welfare of the 
city in general, but of the neighbors resident along the beach in par- 
ticular, that the sheeting be completely erected and finished : the 
Burgomasters therefore order aad give notice to all those having 
houses or lots between the ' poort' and the City Hall, that they 
properly line their lots with sheet planking, according to the survey, 
to be finished by 17th December next, imder penalty of twenty-five 
florins ; and in case of default, the work to be done by the city, at 
the expense of such as are in default." 

An illustrative view of the Schoeinge at this period, extending 
from the City Hall up to the present Hanover Jsquare, is herewith 
presented.

The sheet-piling, as thus constructed, seems, however, to have 
answered but a temporaiy purpose as, in 1672, measures were in pro- 
gress for building up a stone wall along the shore, instead of the 
plank sheathing. That the old work was then in a state of great 
dilapidation seems obvious from the following order : 

" September, 1672. Whereas, tlie highway on the water side, between 
the City Hall and Tryntje Clock's (corner of Pearl street and Hano- 
ver square), is so washed away that the passengers are in danger of 
some mischief, and it is therefore necessary that the said highway be 
repaired and made level, it is ordered that the owners of houses 
fronting on the highway shall cause a footpath of six feet in width 
to be placed before their premises within four weeks ; and for the 
filling up of the rest, the Magistrates will take some course by which 
the owners shall be assisted by the town." This was the first foot- 
path or sidewalk constructed in the city . The plan of improvement, 
at this period, embraced the construction of half-moons or batteries 



530 



in two places on the shore, between the City Hall and the Water 
Gate. One of these is designated as " before the house where long 
Mary lives." 

In connection with the subject of the " Great Dock," we have 
noticed the commencement of the first street, which was made by 
encroaching on the natural shore line. This street was built through 
the dock, and was called Dock street (present Water street, from 
Whitehall to Broad sti-eet). 

By the charter of 1686 (Dongan's Charter"), the city was granted 
the land under water, from high to loAvr water-mark, all around the 
island. Soon after this period, it was determined to bring the land 
into the market. 

The lots first sold by the city were about forty feet front, and a 
provision was made in the grants that the purchasers should fill up 
the front of their lots with one entire house, to be full two stories in 
height above the ground, and tlie front to the street to be of brick or 
stone. With these conditions, the lots from Burger's path to the 
block-house (foot of Wall street), were sold about the year 1692, and 
soon after the premises began to be improved. 

At this period a speculative impulse seems to have pervaded the 
community, and provision was made for the extension of the new 
street as far as the present Fulton street. The various steps taken 
for this purpose will be enumerated in their order. 

May, 1692 : It was ordered that a committee sell the several lots 
between the block-house and Mr. Beekman's. Tliat the former 
streets of King street (now Pine), Green lane (now Maiden lane), and 
Mrs. Van Clyff's (now John street), be left open to low water-mark. 

August, 1692 : The committee reported that they had sold at auction 
twenty-seven lots, on the following conditions : that the purcliasers 
should be obliged to build a wharf or street, the outer part whereof 
to be laid out to low water-mark (present Water street), the same to 
be thirty feet wide, and to be laid in a frame with stockadoes, to be 
finished by 1st November, 1693. When the said street or wharf 
should be finished, it should remain a free passage as all other streets, 
each owner to keep his particular part of the wharf in repair, and, in 
consideration thereof, sliould reap the benefit of the wharf. 

The purchasers of these lots were as follows : 

£ s. 

Major Merritt, two lots, at 61 

The Mayor, five lots, at 153 10 

George Heathcote, one lot, at 38 10 



.531 



£ s. 

Captain Clarke, five lots, at 135 

Dirck Vandenberg, three lots, at . . . . 59 5 

Capt. Nich. D. Morrice, oue lot, at ... 26 10 

Mr. Morrice, one lot, at 23 10 

Captain Schuyler, two lots, at .... 44 

Colonel Cortland, three lots, at 53 

It was further agreed that the city would make the following 
wharfs : one fronting King street, to be thirty feet wide ; one on 
each side of Maiden slip, twelve feet wide, running to high water- 
mark, and one on each side of the slip at Mrs. Van Clyffs, twelve 
feet wide. The slips to be twenty-four feet wide.

EAST RIVER SHORE BETWEEN THE PRESENT JOHN STREET AND PECK SLIP, 1746. 

The progress of improvements on the East Eiver side of the city 
was far in advance of those on the North River side. The ship-yards 
were situated on the East River, and tlie march of population set 
steadily forward in that quarter. Even the swamps were early laid 



532 



out into streets. Wolfcrt's meadow, covering the present Roosevelt, 
James, anil adjacent streets, was bought by speculators, and streets 
laid oiit before the middle of the last century, while, at the same 
period, all above the present Fulton street, on the other side, was in 
farm land. The owners of Wolfert's meadow were Rutgers, Roose- 
velt and Bancker, who applied for a water grant in front of their 
property as early as 1744 ; and a few years subsequently, the Rutgers 
farm, extending from the meadow nearly to Corlears Hook, was laid 
out in building lots.

As to the construction of South street, it was not commenced until 
after the Corporation had procured the charter of 1730 (Montgom- 
erie's). This gave them an additional four hundred feet into the 
river, and grants were made extending as far as the present South 
street, within a few years subsequent to the grant of the charter ; 
and South street was constructed, in certain places, before the Revo- 
lution.

STREET REGULATING AND PAVING. 

Before commencing to regulate and pave the streets, it was neces- 
sary, from the very irregular manner in which the houses were con- 
structed, in reference to lines of thoroughfares, that a survey should 
be made, and permanent lines of streets be laid down. In reference 
to this survey, we find that in February, 1656, the Government was 
engaged in considering the plans submitted to them by the surveyor, 
and at that time tliey resolved to confirm the plan so submitted 
"from then and thenceforward." 

In the same month inspectors were appointed to marli out the lines 
of buildings to be erected. 

In January, 1658, it was resolved, that, " whereas, the inhabitants 
of Brower street (now Stone street) have represented that said street 
has been for some time impassable, and they are disposed to pave it 
with cobble stones, as well for ornament as for use, which the magis- 
trates acceding to, overseers shall be appointed to contract for the 
stones, so as to malce a beginning in the spring," and the expense 
was to be assessed on the residents. 

This was the first street paved, but within the next half-dozen 
years most of the streets were paved in the same manner. 

The pavement alluded to was without sidewalks, and the water 
ran off along the centre of the street. 

The first sidewalk (then called a " strooke)" was that before men- 
tioned in connection with the sheet-piling along the East River. 
But that was a local necessity. Sidewalks were not customary in 
streets for several generations subsequent to the period now spoken of. 

The system of paving in existence in 1693 may be inferred from 
the following order, made in that year : 

"Forasmuch as the former orders, made for paving the streets, 
have been much neglected, whereby citizens and sojourners are much 
annoyed, and intercourse of trade among the inhabitants greatly 
lessened ; for the better regulation thereof, it is ordered, that every 
inhabitant in the streets hereinafter mentioned, shall, before the 
1st of August next, cause to be paved, with pebble-stones, so much 
of said street as shall front their respective premises. 

"Bridge street, from Lucas Kierstede's to Peter Pelanoy's, ten 
feet from the front of each house. 

" The whole of said street, from Peter Delanoy's to the middle of 
Broad street. 

" From Mr. Cortland's corner (present Broad and Pearl streets) to 



534 



the City Hall, ten feet from the fronts of the houses. From the City 
Hall to Martin Clock's (corner Pearl and William), ten feet ; and so 
from the corner of Mr. Lewis' (William street and Hanover square) 
to the City Gate, ten feet. 

"The houses facing the wall, up to the corner of Broad street, ten 
feet. 

" The whole of Church street (Exchange place). 

" The west side of Broad street to Ben. Devall's, ten feet. 

" Broadway, on hoth sides, ten feet, down to Mr. Smith's (opposite 
the Bowling Green), on the west side, and to Lucas Kiersted's on the 
other. 

"Beaver street to be repaired, ten feet on hoth sides." 

From the foregoing order it will be seen, that some of the principal 
streets in the city were, at the period named, wholly without paving, 
and that none of the .leading streets were paved more than ten feet 
from the fronts of the houses ; that there were no sidewalks then 
paved distinct from the pebble-stone paving designed for vehicles, 
and that the middle of the street was without pavement. 

The crude condition of the city in respect to its streets may also be 
inferred from an order made in 1691 ; that " the poisonous and 
stinking weeds before every one's door be forthwith plucked up." 

In June, 1703, the street newly constructed along the river was 
ordered to he paved (present Water street) ; and at the same time, 
Flattenbarrack hill (Exchange place) was ordered for the first time 
to be paved. In 1707 Broadway was first paved, from Trinity Church 
to Maiden lane. 

The system adopted for paving, at this period, was the same as 
formerly, viz. : by requiring the owners to pave before their respect- 
ive premises. In their default, they were subject to a penalty, which 
could be enforced by suit. This system continued for many years 
subsequently, and it is believed that, up to the time of the Revolu- 
tion, the "kennel" ran through the centres of the streets ; and if 
sidewalks existed, they vs^ere the voluntary work of the adjacent 
owners ; we find no regulations in the public ordinances concerning 
either their construction or repair. 

We propose to give brief chronological statements of the various 
measures before the Common Council, for the regulating and paving 
of streets, as the city gradually progressed in growth : 

1733. A petition of executors of Van Cortland and others, stating 
that they have laid out a street, and called the same Cortland street, 
and asking that it he made a public street ; granted, and entered on 
record. 



535 



1749. Dey street was regulated and graded. 

1750. A Committee was appointed to lay ^ut and pave Beekman 
and adjacent streets. 

1750. Thames street was ordered to be paved. (This street had 
been made by Nicholas Bayard, as appears by the following proceed- 
ings : "Nicholas Bayard produces a draft of his lots between Trinity 
Church-yard and the Chief Justice's, and proposes that, if the Cor- 
poration will grant him a slip of ground on the south of his lot 
adjoining Trinity Church-yard, he would, in lieu thereof, leave a 
street on the north side of his lots twenty-one and a half feet wide, 
leading from Broadway to Comfort's Dock." This was agreed to by 
the Corporation.) 

1757. A committee was appointed to lay out streets in North and 
Montgomerie Wards. 

1760. A committee was appointed to regulate and pave Broadway, 
from Dey street to Division (now Fulton) street. 

1761. Ve,sey and Division (now Fulton, west of Broadway) streets 
paved. 

1761. Ti-inity Church ceded the streets on the King's Farm (from 
Broadway to the river, and from Fulton to Warren street). 

1763. Part of Cliff street levelled and tilled up. 

1765. Committee to pave Roosevelt, James, Queen's (Pearl), and 
Rutgers (Madison) streets. 

1769. Committee to regulate Crown street (now Liberty street). 

1769. Vandewater street regulated. 

1769. Committee to regulate King George street (now William 
street, north of Frankfort) . 

1771. Committee to regulate Warren street. 

1773. Committee to regulate Robinson, Murray, and Warren 
streets report. 

After the Revolutionary War, without specifying particular dates, 
except to say that the period extends to the year 1795, we shall give the 
successive measures taken in relation to regulating and paving streets. 
This subject of city improvements was then under a commissioner, 
instead of a committee of the Common Council. (Gerard Bancker 
was the first Street Commissioner.)

BUILDING THE CITY HALL IN WALL STREET. 

The time of erection of the building first used as a City Hall was 
in 1646. The position of the building is well known as being oppo- 
site the head of the present Coenties slip. 

In 1695 we find the first complaints as to its insufficiency, throtigh 
age and dilapidation, for the accommodation of the public service. 
A committee having been appointed to examine into its condition, 
reported in November of that year that it was in bad order, but 
that £150 would suffice to repair it and make it fit for use for " five 
or six years more." These repairs were ordered, and no further ob- 
jection as to its sufficiency appears to have been made during the 
two subsequent years. 

In October, 1697, the Mayor made a communication to the Com- 
mon Council, setting forth that the next week the Supreme Court 
would sit, " at which several criminals" (probably Bayard and others, 
indicted for treason) " would be tried, to which trials it was sup- 
posed great numbers of people would resort, insomuch that it was 
feared the City Hall would not be of sufficient strength to sustain 
them. ' ' Upon this the Common Council ordered that certain masons 
and carpenters should examine the building, and give their opinion 
as to its sufficiency. The mason so appointed reported as his opinion 
that the walls were sufficient to sustain the concourse expected ; and 
as to the carpenter work, the person designated on that subject was 
of opinion, that with six studs and a plank the building might be 
secured from any danger by falling. 

These supports to the building were ordered to be made, and al- 
though the Supreme Court Judges made a special communication on 
the subject, representing, among other things, that several of the 
jurors who had been summoned had signified their determination 
not to answer to their names, by reason of the danger they would be 
in from sitting in the ruinous building, it seems the court was held 
as usual, and that no accident happened. 



538 



As early as May, 1696, the subject of erecting a new City Hall 
was agitated, and a committee was at that time appointed to make 
a draft of the proposed building and to estimate its cost, and to con- 
sider the means of defraying the expense. Upon the report of that 
committee, in June following, it was resolved that a new City Hall 
be built, and, as to the payment, that the rent of the Ferry should 
be mortgaged for fifteen years, that the old City Hall and its site 
should be sold, and certain lands belonging to the city, near the 
dock, should be offered in the market at nine pence per foot. By 
these financial measures it was estimated that three thousand pounds 
could be raised, which would finish a building, or a part of it, suffi- 
cient for present use. 

In January, 1698, a committee, appointed for the purpose, reported 
the necessity of a new building, and that a site opposite the upper 
end of Broad street was the most eligible situation for it. A plan of 
the building, designed by James Evetts, was presented, and the site 
and plan were approved. 

In the year following (1699), measures began to be taken for car- 
rying this proposition into practical operation. It was resolved to 
sell the old City Hall and the ground on which it stood, reserving, 
however, the bell, the King's arms, and the iron-work belonging to 
the prison. This sale took place in August, 1699, at public auction, 
and the amount realized was £920, the purchaser being a merchant 
named John Rodman. The cage, pillory, and stocks, however, were 
permitted to remain in front of the old building for a year afterwards. 

It would seem that the foundation stone of the new building was 
laid, with some ceremony, m August or September, 1699, as in the 
latter month a warrant was drawn for paying the expense incurred 
on that occasion. 

In March, 1700, the Common Council agreed with one William 
Mumford, that the latter should find stones, and carve thereon 
the King's arms, the arms of Lord Bellamont, then Governor, and 
the arms of the Lieutenant-Governor, Captain Nanfan, of the size of 
the several squares left in the front of the City Hall for that purpose, 
all to be completed within six months. Mouldings of stone were 
required to be made around each coat-of-arms, each to be cut on one 
stone, unless a stone sufficiently large for the King's arms could not 
be procured, in which case two stones might be used. For this work 
Mr. Mumford was to receive forty-one pounds four shillings. 

It would seem, therefore, that the building was finished in the year 



539 



1700, or 1701. In the latter year, "a little old boarded house, stand- 
ing by the City Hall," was ordered to be sold to the best advantage. 
The building was certainly finished previous to November, 1702, 
as at that time an order was made that ' ' the arms of the late Earl of 
Bellamont and of Captain Nanfan, which are fastened in the wall of 
the City Hall, be, by the Marshal of the city, forthwith pulled down 
and broken, and that the wall be filled up." 

In 1703, the cage, pillory, whipping-post, and stocks were removed 
from their old locality, at Coenties slip, and erected in the upper end 
of Broad street, a little below the City Hall. Several views of the 
City Hall, in Wall street, have been given in different publications of 
the Manual, but they were taken at comparatively late periods, when 
expensive improvements had been made to the building. Its general 
ground plan, however, as originally constructed, was not materially 
altered by those improvements, and an idea of its original character 
may be inferred from those views. When the building was erected, the 
line of Wall street, on which it was built, was all vacant ground, and 
w^s not built upon for thirty years subsequently. 

In the year 1713, Col. De Peyster and Mr. Bayard, the owners of 
the property adjacent, brought a suit in ejectment against the Cor- 
poration to recover certain lands covered by the City Hall, which 
they alleged belonged to them. The result of this suit does not 
appear in the records. 

In 1715, Mr. Stephen Delancy, a liberal and wealthy merchant of 
this city, presented the city with fifty pounds, which he had received 
as his salary as representative of the city in the General Assembly ; 
and, upon being consulted with as to the manner in which it should 
be used, suggested the purchase of a clock, to be placed in the cupola 
of the C'ty Hall. In 1716 an agreement was accordingly made with 
Mr. Joseph Phillips, a clockmaker in this city, for its construction. 
It was provided, that the largest wheel of the clock should be nine 
inches in diameter, and that there should be two dial-plates of red 
cedar, painted and gilt, each to be six feet square. The price to be 
paid was sixty-five pounds. 

It was not until the year 1718 that the balcony which is seen in 
the engraving representing this building, was constructed ; although, 
when the order was given for its erection, it was stated that it was a 
part of the original design. The building, tlius completed, presented 
the appearance shown in the accompanying engraving, which is 
substantially in accordance with the original design.

nTT HALL IN WALL STREET. 



541 



In 1738 it was found that the cupola of this building was ' ' very 
rotten and in danger of falling," and it was resolved that it be taken 
down and a new one erected. 

In 1763, which was a period when improvements, both private and 
public, were greatly encouraged in the city, the City Hall was 
altered and improved, at very considerable expense ; a committee of 
the Common Council reported a plan of ' ' alterations and orna- 
ments ' ' to the building, which was approved ; and to defray the com- 
puted cost of three thousand pounds, a lottery was established. 
Among other improvements, the building was made higher, and 
roofed with copper procured from England. The "canopy," or 
balcony in the front of the building, was brought out to range with 
the two wings ; a cupola of more imposing dimensions was raised 
upon the building, and a bell of larger dimensions than the old 
one. 

After the Revolutionary "War a notification was received from the 
Congress of the United States that they intended to sit in New York, 
whereupon the Common Council tendered to them the use of the 
City Hall, which was accepted, and the proceedings of that dis- 
tinguished body were opened in that builning. At that time a room 
adjoining that of Congress was occupied as a school-room, and the 
noise of the scholars in their recitations was so annoying as to dis- 
turb the debates. Complaint being made of this, the school was dis- 
continued. Previous to the ensuing session of Congress, the building 
was improved and altered, for their accommodation, according to a 
plan of Major L'Enfants, a French engineer. The expense of these 
improvements was so large as to render the financial measure of a 
lottery again necessary to provide funds to meet the expenses. But 
though a large amount was then expended, the building was still 
found insufficient for public purposes. 

A committee was appointed to report a scheme for a new City Hall, 
but many years elapsed before this design was brought to a practical 
result. 



LIGHTING THE STEEETS. 

No attempt was made to light the streets by public authority until 

the year 1762 (if we except a temporary ordinance in the latter part 

of the previous century, requiring the occupants of every tenth house 

to hang out a lantern upon a pole). An act of Assembly was passed, 

24 



542 



giving the Corporation autliority to provide means for lighting the 
city. In 1762 the first posts and lamps were purchased. These were 
few in numhcr for some years, but increased gradually. In 1770 a 
contract was made with J. Stoutenburg for supplying oil and light- 
ing the city lamps, for the sum of seven hundred and sixty dollars. 

In 1774 the city employed sixteen lamp-lighters. This system of 
lighting the city remained substantially the same until the contract 
with the New York Gas-light Company, in 1823, by which certain 
parts of the city were to be lighted with gas. 



FERRY TO LONG ISLAND. 

Although the city seems to have enjoyed the proceeds of this ferry 
in the times of the Dutch, yet the amount of rental must have been 
trifling, as it is found that as late as 1684 no more than twenty 
pounds per annum was bid for its I'ental. It further appears, that at 
that time no sufficient houses for the accommodation of the public 
desiring ferriage were erected on either side of the river ; so that, 
when proposals were issued for leasing the ferry, in 1684, the best 
proposition offered was that of "William Merritt, who offered £20 per 
year for twenty years, he to erect houses on each side of the river, 
and to have two boats for cattle and horses, and two boats for pas- 
sengers ; the rates of fare to be established at sixpence each for cattle 
and horses, and one penny for passengers. It seems probable that 
for a number of years subsequent to the time mentioned, no per- 
manent arrangement was made in respect to the leasing of the ferry. 

In January, 1699, it was resolved that a new house be erected at 
the ferry on the Long Island side, to be built of brick, two stories in 
height, 25 feet in front and forty feet deep, and soon after rates of 
ferriage were established, as follows : 

Single persons, 8 stuyvers in wampum, or a silver two-pence. 

Persons in company, half price. 

After sunset, double ferriage. 

Cattle (single) one shilling. 
" (in company) nine-pence. 

Colts or calves, three-pence, &c., &c. 

Under these provisions, the ferry was let for seven years to Rip 
Van Dam (afterwards the celebrated Governor) at £165 per annum, 
he being the highest bidder. 



543 

The ferry-house was contracted for in the same year (1699), under 
the following specifications : 

Front, 24 feet ; depth, 40 feet ; cellar of stone, two stories 
above the ground, all to be built of stone. First story, 8.^ feet high ; 
second story, 7^ feet high ; five chimneys, with jambs. The whole 
to cost £485. 

In 1707, "the ferry, with the new ferry-house, the old house, barn, 
pen, and appurtenances," on Long Island, was put up again at auc- 
tion, and by the conditions the lessee was required to provide two 
great boats, or scows, for cattle, &c., two small boats for passengers ; 
the small boats to be kept constantly going to and fro. The new 
ferry-house was to be kept as a house of entertainment. The landing 
places on the New York side were established as follows : On Mon- 
days and Thursdays, at Countess Key (Maiden lane) ; on Tuesdays 
and Fridays, at Burger's path (Hanover square) ; on "Wednesdays and 
Saturdays, at the dock slip near Col. Cortland's house (Coenties slip). 
Tlie lessee and highest bidder was James Harding, a victualler, at 
£180 per annum. 

The Brooklyn people now began to make pretensions to some right 
of ferriage, and one Sebring applied to the Governor for a ferry grant, 
the landing on the Long Island side to be near the present Atlantic 
street. This was opposed by the Corporation of New York, and in their 
remonstrance they set forth that New York, for seventy years past, 
had enjoyed the right of the ferry, and that "the landing-place on 
Xiong Island had been esteemed to extend from the wharf (foot of 
Fulton street, Brooklyn) to the west end of the hill to the westward, 
and that from high water mark to low water mark." 

These proceedings were the foundation of the charter of 1708, by 
which the Corporation of New York was granted all the land between 
high and low water mark, from the Wallabout to Ked Hook, thus 
effectively cutting off all right to land boats between those points 
(individual privilege to that end was, however, reserved to the inhab- 
itants along the shore, for private purposes). 

In December, 1717, two ferries were established, both running 
from the former landing-place on the Long Island side, one of which 
was called "the Nassau Ferry," which was authorized to carry cat- 
tle, &c., as well as goods and passengers ; the other, known as "the 
New York Feny," could carry goods and passengers only. The land- 
ing places of the Nassau Ferry were the same as those before men- 
tioned. The New York Ferry was confined to the slip at Burger's 
path and at the Great Dock . 



544 



Both these ferries were leased to James Harding ; the Nassau Ferry 
at £145 per annum, and the New York Ferry at £85 per annum. 

In 1728, the ferry to Long Island was leased for five years, at £258 
per annum. 

In 1733, the ferry to Long Island was leased for five years, at £245 
per annum. 

In 1738, the ferry to Long Island was leased for five years, at £310 
per annum. 

In 1743, the first law-case respecting the Corporation franchise to 
this ferry was commenced, hy persons representing the alleged rights 
of people in Brooklyn to free ferriage. This was the celehrated case 
of Remsen against the Corporation, which occupied the attention of 
the courts for many years suhsequently, and finally lodged in the Ap- 
pellate Court in England, ahout the period of the Revolutionary War. 

In 1747, the ferry was leased for five years, at £452 per annum. The 
occasion of the delivery of the ferry lease in those old times was 
made one of festivity, and a committee of the whole of the Com- 
mon Council attended at the ferry-house, to celebrate the event. 

The old ferry-house on the Long Island side was burnt about this 
period, supjjosed to be the work of incendiaries ; and in 1749, a 
new edifice for this purpose was ordered, of the dimensions of twen- 
ty-four feet front and fifty-one feet deep, two stories high. It was 
to be built of stone, the front and one side smoothed, the rear and 
one side rough-cast. 

During a considerable interval after this period, there was but one 
ferry in operation, and regulations designed to increase the facilities 
of passage were suggested, viz. : that the ferryman should keep six 
boats ; and as it happened that two men, on account of the wind and 
tide, were often unable to bring their boat across the river, so that 
passengers had to labor at the oar, or otherwise endure a tedious pas- 
sage, and suffer great loss of time, it was proposed that three men 
should be employed in each boat ; that two of the boats should be 
kept for the exclusive use of the passengers, the remaining four to 
carry passengers as well as cattle, wagons, goods, &c. ; that a time 
should be fixed for the departure of each boat at either landing ; and 
it was computed that a boat, rowed by three hands, might, under 
the greatest disadvantages, cross the ferry in one hour and twelve 
minutes, and this portion of time divided by the number of boats 
would give twelve minutes for each boat to remain at the landing. 

In 1774, however, three ferries were established, and the leases 
were sold separately ; the landing-places on the New York side be- 



545 

ing at Coenties slip, at Fly slip (Maiden lane), and at Peck's slip. On 
the Long Island side, there were two landing-places — one at the old 
landing, the other at Philip Livingston's wharf (present foot of At- 
lantic street). These leases, in the aggregate, produced £370 per 



PAULUS HOOK FERRY. 

Previous to the year 1742, there does not appear to have been any 
attempt made to establish any other ferry from the city, except those 
to Long Island, an account of which has been given. 

In October, 1742, parties^ petitioned for a ferry to Weehawken, but 
no definite action was taken upon it. 

In 1753, a petition was presented to establish a ferry from New 
York to the Jersey shore, from " the half -moon battery to Domine's 
Hook." No definite action was had upon it. 

In 1752, a petition was presented to establish a ferry from the city 
to Harsimus, the landing-place at New York to be at the west end of 
Pearl street ; but it was not definitely acted upon. 

In 1764, a committee was appointed to examine whether " the 
people of Paulus Hook have any right of ferriage, and to consult 
counsel. ' ' 

In 1765, Archibald Kennedy and William McAdam petitioned for 
exclusive grant of ferriage to the Jersey shore ; which was opposed 
by Cornells Van Vorst, of Bergen county. New Jersey, who repre- 
sented that he had been at considerable expense in erecting a ferry 
at Paulus Hook, and had been obliged to maintain a causeway half 
a mile in length, and a lane nearly a mile long, and he asked a grant 
of the ferry at reasonable rates, and to receive the ferriage for a term 
on both sides of the river. The consideration of the matter was de- 
ferred, and a committee ordered to confer with the respective parties. 

The committee reported that they had conferred with Van Vorst, 
who oifered forty pounds per annum for seven years, the rates of fer- 
riage to be fixed by the Corporation. After the expiration of his 
lease, he would give the Corporation the privilege of landing on his 
side, they to make the most they could by ferriage from the New York 
side, while he was to be permitted to ferry from the Jersey side for 
his own benefit ; that he was possessed of three large and two small 
boats. He consented that the Corporation should fix the place of 
landing on the New York side. This proposition of Mr. Van Vorst 



546 



was accepted by the Corporation, and the landing-place on this side 
was fixed at a pier belonging to Nicholas Roosevelt, at the foot of 
Cortland street. But it appears that the arrangement fell through 
after about a year. 

In 17G7, the Paiilus Hook ferry was leased, for four years, to Ja- 
cob Van Voorhis, of New York, at a rent of .£310 per annum. It 
has ever since been in active operation, the landing-places on both 
sides not having been changed, except by the making of land into the 
river. Paulus Hook Ferry is notable as being the ferry upon which 
steam ferry-boats were first permanently established. The honor of 
running the first steam ferry-boat in the world doubtless belongs to 
John Stevens, of Hoboken ; but having won the credit, he seems to 
have abandoned the permanent use of steam, and to have returned 
to the old-fashioned horse-boat, after a short period. 

After the success of steamboats had been demonstrated by Robert 
Fulton, that gentleman, with several other persons, called the Jersey 
Association, procured the lease of the Paulus Hook Ferry, and early 
in the year I81I proceeded to construct two steam ferry-boats. Mr. 
Stevens, also, about the same period, commenced the construction of 
one for his ferry, and succeeded in completing it by October, 1811, 
which was nearly a year before those built for Paulus Hook Ferry 
were completed. These were put in operation in August, 1812, and 
an entertainment was given at the tavern at Paulus Hook on that 
ccasion, which was attended by the members of the New York Cor- 
poration, and many distinguished gentlemen of the city. These 
ferry-boats had the propelling wheel in the middle of the boat, be- 
tween two segar-shaped floats ; a plan of construction which con- 
tinued on the difi"erent ferries for many years subsequently. 



OTHER FERRIES LANDING ON THE NORTH RIVER SIbE 
OE THE CITY, 

It was not until after the Revolutionary War that any other per- 
manent ferry was established by public authority on the North River 
and bay, except that running to Paulus Hook ; although private 
individuals ran boats from several points, such as Staten Island, 
Elizabethtown Point, and Hoboken. But soon after the Revolution, 
and before the commencement of the present century, the following 
ferries were under lease from the Corporation : Bull's Ferry, Eliza- 
bethtown Point, Fort Lee, Hoboken, Staten Island, and Weehawken. 



547 



IMPROVEMENT OF THE SHORE OF THE NORTH RIVER 
ABOVE THE BATTERY. 

The early grants of lots for building purposes, on the west side of 
Broadway, extended to the river shore, which, for nearly a century, 
ran along the rear of the gardens of those premises. 

In the times of the Dutch, palisades were erected along the bank 
of the river, being a continuation of those along "Wall street, and 
extended down to the fort ; but they did not exist long after the oc- 
casion for their construction had passed by. 

The earliest map of the city (1661) presents a rough pictorial view 
of a windmill, which stood on the shore of the river, on the line of 
the present Battery place, of which ancient edifice the following is a 
copy : 




WINDMILL AT FOOT OF THE PRESEXT BATTERY PLACE, 16t)l. 



It was not until the year 1722, that the subject of encroaching 
upon the natural river line seems to have received any attention ; at 
which period several persons petitioned for grants from high water 
to low water mark, in the Hudson River. The subject being thus 



548 

brought to the attention of the Common Council, an order was made 
that notice he given to the owners of property adjacent to tlie shore, 
with a view to learn if they had any objection to such grants. As 
tliese proprietors seemed to view the matter with great indifference, 
the Corporation, in the following year (1723), resolved that "the 
land between high and low water mark, on Hudson Eiver, from 
the house of Mr. Gaasbeck ' ' (corner of present Battery place and 
Broadway), " near the fort, to the green trees, commonly called the 
Locust trees, near the English church " (present Eector street), " be 
granted to the proprietors on the west side of Broadway, at a rental ; 
if tliey refuse, then to be granted to any other persons who will pur- 
chase the same." 

This resolution seems, however, to have brought no response from 
the owners, and six years afterwards it was renewed in similar terms, 
and the subject was referred to a committee, to cause surveys to be 
made. This committee, in November, 1729, reported, after confer- 
ence with some of the adjacent proprietors, that, in their opinion, 
two street^ ought to be made, one of thirty feet in width at low 
water mark, and one of forty feet in width at high water mark, to 
run parallel with each other ; high water mark to be about the 
centre of the street ; the said streets to extend from the premises 
of Col. Gaasbeck to those of Mr. Rodman ; that three slips should 
be left, " one fronting on the narrow street running through the 
land of Adolph Philipse, commonly called Goelets street" (now 
Morris street) , ' ' one fronting the narrow street near Alderman Van 
Gelder's, commonly called the alley that leads to Oyster pasty" 
(now Exchange place); "the other fronting the narrow street 
which runs from Broadway, on the south side of the English church, 
to the locust trees," said streets to be made by the respective own- 
ers. The Common Council adopted this report, fixing the price of 
the land under water at nine-pence per foot, and authorized a com- 
mittee to agree for sales, and that, if the upland owners refused to 
purchase, sales to be made to any other persons. 

This was the permanent establishment of the present Greenwich 
and Washington streets, from the Battery to a point near the rear of 
Trinity Church-yard ; those two streets running, respectively, the 
one on the natural high water mark, and the other on the low 
water mark. 

But it was a number of years subsequent to that period before any 
actual progress was attempted in the filling up of the streets thus 
laid down, although grants were gradually being taken up by the 
adjacent proprietors. 



549 



A view of the river shore in the year 1740, embracing the whole 
distance from the Battery to Trinity Church, shows no other improve- 
ment of the natural shore except the erection of a small wharf on 
the line of the present Battery place. 




NORTH RIVER SHORE NEAR TRINITT CHURCH, 1740. 



After the year 1743, the fact appears that parties owning the up- 
land near Cortland and Dey streets began to take up water-grants 
from the Corporation. The conditions of these grants were that 
grantees should leave a street forty feet wide fronting their upland, 
and another street of the same width at the extremity of their grant. 
These streets were in continuation of those already adopted as before 
mentioned, and were those now known as Greenwich and Washing- 
ton streets. The quit-rents for these grants were four pence per 
foot. 

Trinity Church owned the King's Farm, extending from Broadway 
to the river, between the present Fulton and Warren streets, and 
they took out their grant about the year 1751. At about the same 
period, their farm was laid out in streets.

Above that farm lay the Domine's Hook, extending to the present 
Canal street. This also originally belonged to Trinity Church. The 
following sketch shows the river shore along nearly the whole of this 
farm.

It was not until after the Revolution that the streets (present 
Greenwich and Washington), originally designed more than half a 
century previous, were regulated or improved as streets, except in 
occasional places. Two or three piers were erected on the west side 
of Greenwich street, between Cortland and Fulton streets, previous 
to the Eevolution ; and one large building, iised for the deposit of ar- 
tillery stores, occupied the block between Cortland and Dey streets, 
but below Liberty street the river shore was in its natural condition 
until near the commencement of the present century. 






In 1713, the subject of erecting "a poor-house and house of correc- 
tion" was first agitated, and a committee was appointed " to consider 
of a convenient place to erect the same, of the dimensions and mate- 
rials proper for its construction, and of the ways and means to be

THE MEADOWS AND COLLECT POND. 

The Collect Pond was the most noted geographical feature of the 
lower part of Manhattan Island, when in its natural state. The pond 
was fed hy several springs, and was very deep, and contained varieties 
of fish. Its natural outlet was a brook emptying into the East River. 
This stream was in very early times known as ' ' Old Wreck Brook, ' ' 
from the circumstance, probably, of a wreck on the river shore in 
the vicinity ; but it afterwards was called " the Fresh Water," and 
was the line of the city jurisdiction for many purposes. The Mea- 
dows, a section of brambly swamp-land, extending to the North 
River, were permeated by the waters of the Collect. The ground 
was so wet and miry, that cattle were unsafe there in many places. 
When Mr. Rutgers procured a grant of the Meadows from the Crown 
officers, he was required to cut a drain through the meadows. This 
measure had the eifect to lower the surface of the Collect, and the 
natural outlet to the East River dried up. 

We have in a previous number of the Manual given a more minute 
history of these localities, and they need not be repeated, except to 
say that the filling up of the Collect was begun about the year 1800 
and continued about ten years. It was considered as the most im- 
portant public work which had been engaged in by the city, at that 
period. 



PROVIDING FOR THE POOR. 

In the times of the Dutch, the poor were taken care of by the 
church wardens, the funds being provided out of the receipts of the 
church. A building was provided for them in the present Broad 
street, west side, north of Beaver street. But no public fund was 
necessary to be raised for their support. As late as the year 1699, the 
matter of provision for the poor was of so inconsiderable a character, 
that it was resolved in Common Council ' ' to agree with some person 
to keep a hospital for the maintenance of the poor of the city, and 
that a house be provided for their accommodation." 

In 1713, the subject of erecting "a poor-house and house of correc- 
tion" was first agitated, and a committee was appointed " to consider 
of a convenient place to erect the same, of the dimensions and mate- 
rials proper for its construction, and of the ways and means to be 



552 

provided for the same." At this period, the poor who were taken 
care of by the city were not maintained in any pubUe establishment, 
but boarded. They wore a badge upon their clothes, with the mark 
N. Y., either in blue or red cloth. 

The first step towards the erection of a house for the poor was 
taken in December, 1734, when a resolution was adopted, reciting 
that : " Whereas, the poor of the city were increasing, and were very 
burthensome to the inhabitants, for want of a work-house and house 
of correction, it was resolved, that a convenient house be erected on 
the unimproved grounds of the Corporation on the north side of the 
lands of Col. Dongan, commonly called the Vineyard ;" and a com- 
mittee was appointed to lay out land enough for a house and garden . 
The house thus to be erected was to be fifty-six feet long, twenty- 
four feet wide, two stories high. It was to be built of stone. 

In March, 1735, a committee, appointed to agree with parties 
for the erection of this building, reported that they had contracted 
with John Burger as follows : 

" For superintending the work, eighty pounds. 
" For 70 gallons of rum, for use of the masons and laborers, eight 
pounds fifteen shillmgs. 

" For 70 lbs. sugar (to sweeten the rum), one pound five shillings. 
" For small beer, two pounds ten shillings." 

In March, 1736, it would appear that the building was ready for 
occupancy, as a committee was then appointed to inquire what mate- 
rials were useful to set the inmates at work, so that " they might not 
eat the bread of idleness, and be a burthen to the public." This 
committee reported the necessity of procuring spinning wheels, knit- 
ting needles, flax, old junk, wool, and cotton. John Sebring was 
appointed overseer, at a salary of £30, with diet for his family. The 
supplies for the establishment were furnished by the church wardens 
out of the fund provided for maintaining the minister and the poor. 
It was further provided that slaves requiring whipping were to be 
sent there by their masters for that purpose, and a fee of one shilling 
and sixpence was to be paid for the service. A large garden, for the 
use of the establishment, was to be constructed. 

In 1746, it was found this building was too small, and an addition 
was made to it. 

In 1757, a grave-yard, for the inmates, was inclosed, to the east- 
ward of the inclosure. 
This building was situated upon the present site of the City Hall. 



553 



THE JAIL. 

Tlie room in the basement of the City Hall, used for confinement 
of criminals, became entirely inadequate both to secure the prisoners 
and to furnish them proper accommodations. As early as 1724, com- 
plaint was made by the judges of the condition of the jail. In 1727 it 
was presented by the grand jury, and four men were, inconsequence, 
appointed to watch it, to prevent escapes. In 1740 it was still found in- 
secure. But it was not until 1756 that an act of Assembly was procured, 
enabling the Corporation to provide means for the erection of a new 
jail. The site chosen was in the fields, and a building, at first 
designed to be two stories in height, and about fifty feet front, was 
commenced, in 1757. Before its completion, however, it was decided 
to add a third story. The walls of that building are still standing, 
though not recognizable under the exterior of the Hall of Records. 
In front of this building a whipping-post, stocks, cage, and pillory 
were erected in 1764. 



BRIDEWELL. 

About the year 1774, it was thought expedient to procure more 
adequate accommodations for the prisoners for debt and light offenses, 
and the erection of a Bridewell was commenced in the fields, near 
Broadway, on a line with the jail and alms-house. The means were 
raised by a lottery, in which the city took one thousand tickets. 



HOSPITAL. 

This institution, though not erected under municipal authority, 
received aid from the city in its erection, to the extent of one thou- 
sand pounds. It was at first proposed to erect the building in Broad- 
way, opposite the fields, and the city offered the gift of a lot one hun- 
dred and twenty-four feet front, and two hundred and forty-eight feet 
deep. The erection of the hospital was commenced in the year 1771. 



554 



SUPPLY OF WATER. 

There were no public wells before the year 1658. The inhabitants 
were supplied by private wells, within their own inclosures ; but it 
was generally the custom for several neighboring families to join in 
the expense of constructing a well, which was used in common by 
them all. 

The first public well constructed was in front of the Fort. Tliis 
was petitioned for in 1658, by the city Burgomasters. It was the 
great resort of the inhabitants (not otherwise supplied) during the 
whole period of the Dutch rule. 

It does not appear that any other wells were constructed in the 
streets until 1677, which was some years subsequent to the English 
establishment. At that time an order was made that " wells be 
made in the following places, by the inhabitants of the streets where 
they are severally made, viz. : 

" One opposite Roelof Jansen, the butcher. 
One in Broadway, opposite "Van Dyck's. 
One in the street, opposite Derick Smith's. 
One in the street, opposite John Cavalier's. 
One in the yard of the City Hall. 
One in the steeet, opposite Cornells Van Borsum's." 

In 1687, seven other public wells were ordered in different streets ; 
for the purpose of defraying the expense of which, the authorities de- 
signated the respective premises to be assessed ; and, in the same year, 
the rule appears to have been established, that the City Government 
should pay one-half the expense, and the neighbors benefited the 
other half. 

The means of constructmg public wells, during the earlier part of 
the last century, was by a contribution of eight pounds by the City 
Government, and the remaining expense was defrayed by the inhabit- 
ants residing in the neighborhood, none of whom were allowed the 
use of the well until they had contributed a fair proportion of the 
expense. 

About the year 1750 pumps came into use, and a general act was 
afterwards passed by the Assembly, to enable the city to raise a tax 
for the construction and keeping in repair the public wells and 
pumps. 

The subject of procuring a supply of water by means of large wells. 



555 



pumped by machinery, aud thrown into an elevated reservoir, from 
wliich it might be led through the city in wooden pipes, was brought 
before the Common Council as early as the year 1774, by Christopher 
Collis, who may justly be styled the father of improvements in the 
water supply of this city. We do not propose to give the history of 
the measures taken at that time, except to say that some time after 
the Revolution they were brought into active operation. 



THE EXCHANGE, AT FOOT OF BKOAD STREET. 

An edifice for the accommodation of merchants was proposed in 
1752, and the site fixed upon was the centre of Broad street, near the 
East River. This place had formerly been occupied by a public 
market-house. The Common Council contributed one hundred 
pounds towards its erection, and assumed the expense of constructing 
the second story, and a cupola. The building was finished about the 
close of the year 1753. 

After the Revolutionary War, this building was disused as an ex- 
change, and the lower part converted into a market, while the "long 
room," on the second floor, was occupied as a military school, and 
occasionally for dancing assemblies. It was taken down about the 
beginning of the present century.
