the present State street. The extreme southwest portion of
the fort was very near the water's edge. Extending- to the
north, the shore line tended to the west, and formed the south
line of what was originally called Marckvelt street, and now
Batterj^ place, which met the river shore. The water line then
followed the })resent Greenwich street, where there was another
sandy beach liable to be washed away by very high tides, to
prevent which the owners of the lots used to erect low stone
walls. In the vicinity of Trinity Church the river shore was a
high, steep bank, as shown by the height of the stone wall which
sepai'ates Trinity Church yard (which retains its original level)
from Greenwich street and Rector street. On both sides of this
ancient churchyard the land has been graded to the street level.

To the east of Broadway was a high hill, now mostly leveled,
but the steep grade of what was anciently " Flattenbarrack
street," now Exchange })lace, shows to some extent what it once

The Strand along the East river extended to AVall street,
and beyond this was a long stretch of low meadow land, which
was known as the "Smith's Valey." The latter word was
shortened into "Vly," and later corrupted into "Fly." The
market at the foot of Maiden Lane was originally named the
Vly ^Market, but in its corrupted form, was called the "Fly
Market," and its true name was utterly forgotten.

A person standing at the corner of Fulton and Beekman
streets will see to the east or north a slight elevation of land.
This is all that remains of wliat was once known as "the Hill
by William Beekman 's" long since leveled, and its material
used to fill u}) the water lots, for it is, ])erliai)s, needless to state
that all the land 1)etween Pearl street and the river is "made

.. ^


land." Tliis hill was ilw north honiidary of the Siuit'.i's \'ly.
and in later years, Pearl street from Beeknian street to the
Bowery land was called "the highway that lead-; freni the
Smith's AHy toward the Fresli water."

What is now Broad street was a low jnece of land tliroi'ah
which a canal was dng which extended nearly to Wall street.
On each side was a narrow street, and. the canal l)eino- tilled
11]), made a street to some extent meriting- its ju-esent name.

At the junction of John and William streets was another
elevation of ground, known as (lolden Tlill. and like many
others long since leveled. l)ut the name continued till Revolu-
tionary days.

The lower i)art of Maiden Lane ran through a marshy
region which vras a ] art of the Smith's Vly, and tanners
had their tan vats there; hut tlie statement made hy some tliat
a stream ran down this street rests on no sufficient autliority.

One of the prin.cipal features of the landscajie at that time
was a small jjond. or more properly, two small ponds connected
hy a marsh, and known as the Fresh Water and Collect Fond.
Centre street runs thrcmgh it. and Ann street (now Lafayette
street) was on its western side. To the west of this a small
stream ran through the ]n'esent Canal street, which at Broad-
way was crossed hy a stone hridge. not made, however, till a
much later i:eriod. This stream ran through a tract of low land
known as Lis])enard's meadows.

Near the joesent corner of Mott street and the Bowery
was a sjuaug of very i)ure water, in great demand for "tea
water." and sold from house to house for that i)urpose !iy per-
sons who made it a business. From this ]ilace a rivulet or small
l)rook ran east throuah the low land, and emjjtied into the East
river at what is now James Slip. This brook was for long
vears the reci:>gni7,ed lioundarv between Citv and ('oimtry. The


little bridge that ci'ossed it was known as the "Kissing bridge,"
and gentlemen escorting ladies across it were supposed to be
entitled to certain ]n'ivileges, of which they doubtless availed
themselves. This stream was the boundary between the Mont-
gomerie ward and the Out ward, which embraced all the rest of
Manhattan Island. In 1794 this stream had been so completely
filled up, that its original place was unknown, and a new boun-
dary between the Avards was established. This stream ran
through a tract of very low land known as "AVolfert Webber's
meadows." It extended nearly to Cherry street, but was sep-
arated from it and from the river shore by a high bank sloping
down to the meadow and about two hundred and fifty feet wide.

jVll authorities agree that the island was a wooded region.
When the first ships were built in the early city, there was no
lack of timber ready to hand. A person going from the city
(then below AVal! street) to Stuyvesant's Bowery, was said to be
obliged to travel a lonely road, for nearly two miles, through
the woods. A farm in the vicinity of Tenth street was described
as extending from the Hudson's . river "300 rods into the
woods," and other farms are described in like manner.

Quite a large brook had its rise near Eighth avenue and
Thirty-fourth street, and winding its devious way emptied into
the North river at Forty-ninth street. This was called the Great
Kill, or brook, and was the largest stream on the lower part
of the island. Another stream, or brook, had its fountain head
near the junction of Sixth avenue and Twenty-third street, and
miming southward crossed Fourteenth street and ran diagonally
across the blocks, entered Fifth avenue at Ninth street, and ran
down the middle of the avenue to Washington Square. It ran
across the S(|uare, crossing Fourth street a few feet east of
Macdougal street, and ran to Alinnetta Lane, and finally joined
the I'iver at Charlton street. This stream was known as the


Alinnetta bi-ook, and is noted as being the boundary of large
and important traets of land. For instance, it separated the
Harring faiin on tlie east from the land of Sir Peter Warren
on the west. This stream has been tilled np, and all trace has
disappeared long years ago, but its underground springs are
sometimes found to plague the contractors engaged in the erec-
tion of large imildings.

When Granunercy Park was laid out it was low land, "cov-
ei'ed with cat-tails," and other niarsliy ])lants.

What is noAv Astor Place is a part of a road which is very
frecjuently mentioned in old deeds as "tlie road which leads
from the Bowery lane, ovei' the Sand Hills, to Greenwich."
These sand hills are at the Junction of University Place and
Waverly Place. They are composed of fine sand, and probably
blown into the hills by the winds. Like other elevations, they
have long since been leveled.

Stone street, east of Broad, was in the eai'liest times known
as the "Hoogh straat." or High street, and takes its name
from the fact that it was laid out on a high bank which at that
point overlooked the Strand.

The eastern part of the De Lancy farm and the farm of the
Stuyvesant family was a large tract of low land, a i)art of which
was called the "meadow of the King's farm." In the middle of
this large tract of meadow, at Fourth street, was a small tract
of upland much higher than the meadows surrounding it, and
called. "Manhattan Island." a name that continued for uuniy
years, but the memor\' of it has almost entirely passed from the
l)]-esent generation.

On the south side of the Beekman farm was a swamp or
a Kreupel boscli, as the Hutch termed it. This was purchased
by Jacobus Eoosevelt and others, and divided into lots. On
account of the water, tanneries were built here, and the lo-



eality to this time has been the headquarters, and is still known
as "The Swamji." Jacob street runs through it.

The Dutch word "Kreupel boseh" was defined as "a piece
of low land beset with small trees." The word was corrupted
into Cripple bush, rind is frequently found in old deeds as mean-
ing a swamp. The Dutch word "Kill" means a brook, and its
diminutive is "Killitie, " or little brook, both frequently found.

On the Bayard farm, in the vicinity of Broome street, was
a very high hill, sometimes called Bayard's Mount, but oftener
Bunker Hill. The gi-ading of the streets has long since caused
it to disappear.


All descendants of the Holland settlers owe a iiarticnlar
delit of gi-atitude to Rev. Henriens Selyns, who was minister
of the Dnteh ehureh from 1682 to 1701. In 1686, for convenient
I'eferenee, he made a eonijvlete list of the members of his ehureli
and the streets on which they lived. Tliis list has fortunately
been ])reserved, and was printed in one of the early volumes of
the "Collections of the Xew York Historical Society." This
list gives the names of the church members, also the names of
their wiAcs a.nd husbands. It ha]i])ened in many cases that
husljands Avero church members, while the wives were not, and
ric' rfrsa. The list is especially A'aluable, as it furnishes the
nnmes of the wife's father, given in Dutch style. For exami)le,
the wife of Paulus Turck was Aeltie Barents, that is, Aeltie,
daughter of Barents. In many cases the maiden name of the
wife is given, as the wife of Francis Rombout wlas Helena

The "Beurs Straat" in this directory is the only place
where that name is given. It is probably White Hall, south of
Pearl street. The house of Cornelius Steenwyck stood on the
south eornei- of Whitehall and Bridge street.

"Koninck Straat" ai)pears nowhere else than on this list.
It is Exchange Place, east of Broad street, and was originally
called Tuyn street, or (larden street. After the Dutch church
was built u]>nn it, the name of Church street was sometimes
gi\-en. 'I'he name of King street Avas in later days given to what
is now Pine street, l)ut that street was not opened till 1691.



.Maix'kvc'lt ^tiaat is now i)artly obliterated Ijy the Produce
Exchange. The eastern ])art of it stilJ remains of its original
width. With the exception of Pearl street (Avest of Broadway)
this is tile only ancient street which lias not been widened.

'J' he list appears to have been made with the greatest care,
but it is possible that some errors have been made as to the
names of the wiAcs. An important instance is given in the
case of the noted Petnis Stuyvesant, whose wife was Judith

When this list was inade there wei'e no houses on the north
side of AVall street, or the "Cingle." as it was then generally
called. But along the Smith's Vl> , or the jn-esent Pearl street,
there were houses on the north (or west) side as far as Maiden
Lane and beyond. At the time this list was made the houses
south of the ancient Pearl street faced the water, and Whitehall
Sli]) was not filled in, but exteiuled to o])posite Pearl street.
For this reason the famous dacol) I^eisler is mentioned as liv-
ing "along the Strand."
