    In 1776 British Admiral Howe called a peace conference here in an effort to end the revolution. The talks failed when Howe couldn’t offer independence, and the war lasted seven more years.

    It's haunted. I attended a seance there years ago. A very cool place to visit.

    Stroll along the beach with your beloved while the sun shines, and enjoy views of the Raritan Bay from the romantically lit pavilion after the sun sets.

    The Staten Island Peace Conference was held here on Sept 11, 1776, which unsuccessfully attempted to end the American Revolutionary War. It's the only pre-Revolutionary house still surviving in NYC.
