1909 engraving of the Knickerbocker Cottage as it appeared in 1851.

"The old Knickerbocker Cottage, in Sixth-avenue, near Twenty-seventh-street, was sold at auction by John F. B. Smyth, in the Exchange Salesroom, yesterday...

The Knickerbocker Cottage was built piecemeal in the early part of the present century. More than 150 years ago the land on which the cottage stands was owned by the Varian family, one of whom was Mayor of New-York. The cottage first became known as a public resort in 1850. It was kept as a roadhouse by Peter Connor for several years, and in 1863 Capt. William Fowler took a long lease of it. Under the latter's management it became a popular, quiet resort for merchants and sporting men. A great many different clubs and associations were organized under its roof. Capt. Fowler sold his lease to ex-Alderman Bernard Goodwin last May."
(The New York Times, March 19, 1885).
  • Matting & Framing Options

    You can customize your print's presentation from a wide selection of frames and mats: modern or classic - all timeless. See the options here.

    Our most popular style is Modern Black - Thin frame, coupled a White Mat with Black Core. The Modern White frames will match any style and are perfect for gifts. Looking for something with more bang? The gold and silver frames may be what you want. See examples here.

    Mats are not offered with Gallery frames at the moment (but look great without them!).

  • Frame Sizes

    All frames are custom cut and sized to match the dimensions of the image. Your final, framed print might not exactly match the dimensions listed in the Frame Size dropdown menu. 

    The maximum dimensions of each frame size are:

    • Keepsake: Up to 5" x 7"
    • Accent: Up to 9" x 12" 
    • Spotlight: Up to 16" x 20"
    • Centerpiece: Up to 34" x 36"
    • Gallery: Up to 32" x 40"

    Because of the original pixel size of the scans, not all prints are available in all sizes.

  • Shipping & Delivery

    Shipping is always free!

    Prints will be scanned at the archives, and retouched by our artists to make them pixel-perfect. They will then be reprinted, trimmed, matted and framed to fit their custom sizes.

    You should expect the final, framed print in 4-6 weeks. Because each print is custom researched, retouched, and framed, all sales are final.
