Friends of the Abraham Manee-Seguine Homestead

To be delivered to Bill De Blasio, Mayor of New York City

Petition Statement

Dear Mayor De Blasio:
The Abraham Manee House, also known as the Abraham Manee-Seguine Homestead, is a three-part Colonial Dutch dwelling that was designated a New York City landmark in 1984. Located on the South Shore of Staten Island on Purdy Avenue, and adjacent to Lemon Creek, the oldest section is a one-room structure built by Paulus Regrenier in the 1670s. An addition made of rubble-stone and Tabby, was added by Abraham Manee in the late 18th century. The Seguine family purchased the homestead in the 1780s and built an addition in the early part of the 19th century.
It is purported to be one of the oldest Dutch structures on Staten Island and is threatened with demolition.
Please allow the City of New York to purchase the Structure from the owner who is willing to sell it to the City, to preserve it for future generations of Staten Islanders. The present owner has purportedly said "Tell the City to buy it. I will give them a good price."
There are currently 430 signatures. NEW goal - We need 500 signatures!

Petition Background

Convincing the City of New York to purchase the Structure from the owner who is willing to sell it to the City.
PLEASE NOTE CORRECTION: The correct address of the homestead is 509 Purdy Place.
