    A good place to get an idea of what New York was like at the turn of the century, to learn about an extraordinary woman or just to take in the magnificent view of the downtown skyline over the harbor.

    Alice Austen lived in this cottage, dubbed “Clear Comfort,” for over 75 years, producing 1000s of photographs. It was first constructed in 1691-1710, and we designated it a landmark in 1971.
