Philip Hooker was one of the most notable architects in Albany when George Clarke commissioned him to collaborate on what would become Hyde Hall. There is much mystery about the depths of his character and his skills, but some images and writings included in A Neat Plain Modern Stile: Philip Hooker and His Contemporaries, 1796-1836 intends to bring some of that to light and attempts to locate Hooker among the fellow architects of his time. #HistoricNY #HydeHall #ArchitectureatHydeHall https://link.cnymm.com/2vYVcQK

Ann Low Cary Cooper Clarke married George Clarke, the builder of Hyde Hall, after her first husband, a Cooper, died. Her fifth child was rumored to have been Clarke's son, not the late Mr. Cooper's, who died while Ann was still pregnant. Read on at the link for more of the family's potential but sanctioned marriage scandal! #HydeHall #ClarkeFamily #HistoricNY https://link.cnymm.com/2vYvgVj

"Beavers do better work than the Corps of Engineers" -Mike Todd
.
Tupper is not a beaver, but he is the first known 'Hamster Ranger' in the National Park Service. He is a Winter White Hamster. His uniform is a little big on him, but he sure looks good in it! Did you know that rodents were an important part of fort life here at #FortStanwix? The fur of large rodents, such as beavers, was highly sought after for its thickness and ability to repel water. These guys were almost hunted to extinction, but luckily they made a come back. They are very important ecosystem engineers. You can still see them regularly along the #mohawkrivertrail and the #eriecanaltrail. Come visit Tupper as well and he will tell you all about the rodents of the Mohawk Valley.

Other Historic Homes: Have a little bit of interest in the other side of the American Revolution? Visit Philipse Manor Hall in Yonkers, where a Declaration of Dependence was formulated and signed by loyalists in 1776. Long after the war, the building became the first City Hall. Now, you can visit to experience Georgian architecture, Presidential portraits, and other primary sources of history. #OtherHistoric Places #HistoricNY #HistoricPreservation https://link.cnymm.com/2vZ384D

Grace Court Alley was originally an unnamed horse stable alley used by the Remsen family, who lived in a nearby mansion. Its name came from Grace Church, built across the street from the alley in 1847. The architect Richard Upjohn, who just the year before had designed Trinity Church on Wall Street in lower Manhattan, designed Grace Church in a Gothic Revival style. The church used Grace Court Alley as a stable alley, or mews, for a period of time, and as development continued in Brooklyn Heights, it was also used as mews for mansions located on the bordering Remsen and Joralemon Streets. As automobiles began to replace horse-drawn carriages, in time Grace Court Alley was paved, improved, and opened to the public. Homeowners on Remsen and Joralemon Streets turned the stables that lined the alley into garages and chauffeurs’ quarters. Later, the buildings were transformed into apartments.
Today, Grace Court Alley is completely residential and retains a quiet old-world charm. Strolling down the small side street, it is almost impossible not to marvel at the preserved relics of years gone by: the tall wooden stable doors, the hay cranes, the doorknockers, and the window frames.
