A house sketch by A. Croste. This house Mrs. Vanderbilt wrote in her "History of Flatbush" was built in Flatbush's earliest days (mid l600s) by a member of the Waldron family and had descended through the Fish and Strycker families to Michael Neefus who owned it in l842. This info from a book "An Album of New Netherland" by Maude Esther Dillard, Twayne Publishers, New York City l963. My thanks to Author Shirley E. Dunn for her kindness in sending the pictured sketch and info to me. Dunn is author of many works including Dutch Architecture near Albany, the Polgreen Photographs (l996) a great inspiration to me while writing my "Manhattan Seeds of the Big Apple"-Gloria Waldron Hukle
