In the center of Staten Island, this ‘town’ of 27 buildings (some dating back to a 1690s Dutch community) stands in a 100-acre preservation project maintained by the Staten Island Historical Society. The town includes the former county seat of the island; its most famous building, the two-story, 300-year-old, redwood Voorlezer’s House, is the US’s oldest schoolhouse. Guides lead tours (included with admission) at 2:30pm on weekdays and at 2pm and 3:30pm on weekends.

The site is about 35 minutes from the ferry by bus.
