History on Bay: The Alice Austen House
The Alice Austen House is a historical landmark that sits on the Upper New York Bay in Staten Island. In the video above, viewers can take a tour of the grounds through the eyes of the New York Landmarks Conservancy.
The property belonged to Alice Austen. She was a prolific photographer that produced over 8,000 photographs during her time. The house has many of her accouterments and photographs on exhibit. The bucolic and Victorian home hosts a variety of exhibits year round.
The property is also used to host venues such as weddings and cultural events all year round. Many of these events are hosted by Chez Vous Caterers. The area has been augmented with bed and breakfasts and local eateries for guests that attend these events. Take some time and take a gander; you’ll be happy you did.
You can find a full calendar of exhibits, here.
Here’s a bonus Alice Austen House video from back in 2009:
