Newtown - Moore House - Elmhurst
Collection: Eugene Armbruster Drawings and Photographs
Description: Moore House - Looking from Broadway to the front and east end. In the 1920's the house was still on a 5 1/2 acre tract bounded by Broadway, 45th Ave., and 80th Street. The center part of the house dated back to 1666, and was built by Capt. Samuel Moore; the newest part was built in 1760 by Lt. Samuel Moore. The Perry family descendants of the Moore family occupied the house in the 1920's. It was torn down about 1930 for subway construction. It is the now Moore Homestead Playground in a smaller footprint.
