One more tangible piece of Staten Island History was forever wiped from existence on September 2, 2010. Despite efforts to save it, the Main House of Butler Manor was promptly demolished…in record time.
It should be noted that the New York City Landmarks Commission denied Landmark Status for the structure, declaring it a “non-historically significant” building. Nice.
The owner/demolisher of the building plans to build 3 “houses” on the site.
