Do you know these homes?

Flamm 790220585 large ID 823 600pxDo you live here now?



These never-before-published photos were recently re-discovered in our archives while our curators were working on the Herbert Flamm Collection of photographic images.  Although we know an awful lot about the New York Metro area and especially Staten Island, we don't know where these photos were taken.  Perhaps you do?  

Do you know these homes? If you do, tell us their story.

Mr. Flamm took these photographs in 1949 on Staten Island. These lovely single-story homes with basements look like a set of three but might be part of a larger development that popped up during the post World War II housing boom. These houses are likely still standing today and perhaps enlarged.  Maybe you are reading this right now while sitting in one of these homes?

If you have some information that could help us, please click on the link below to fill out a response form.  The first person who can correctly identify these homes will win four tickets to Uncorked! 2016. That's a $100 plus gift. 

Do you know?  Please tell us!

Do you know this street?

Do You Know photo May 2015 700pxThis image was recently re-discovered in our archives when our curators were working on the Herbert Flamm photograph collection. We know only a bit about this particular photo. Perhaps you can help us fill in the details.

The photograph, one of a set of five, was taken on November 30, 1954 by Herbert Flamm, a well-known local photographer who was often commissioned to photograph streets and buildings for insurance companies.  Looking closely at the image, we can see that the address number on the house at left is 111, and the number on the house at right is 121. On the telephone pole at left we can see a campaign flyer for Edward Amann Jr., who won election to the New York State Assembly in 1952, representing the North Shore of Staten Island, and served as an Assemblyman for 21 years..

Do you live in one of these houses, or do you recognize the street or neighborhood? If you have some information that could help us, please click on the link below to fill out a response form.
