1. Church of Saint Andrew Marker
Inscription. Reminiscent of English Norman Parish Churches built in the 12th century, this structure was created in 1872 by architect William M. Mersereau. It was constructed using stone walls of the first church building on the site which was erected between 1708 and 1712. During the Revolutionary War, the church functioned as a hospital for the British and was the scene of a battle in 1777 when Americans attacked the British troops who had barricaded themselves inside the building.
 
Erected 1989 by New York Landmarks Preservation Foundation.
