Slideshow from the New York Times

On Aug. 8, 1966, The New York Times ran an article about how many Harlem residents wished more white people would visit to see for themselves their community’s reality. The article, by McCandlish Phillips, detailed in an almost anthropological way the Harlem of 1966 to Times readers.

“A curtain of fear, about as forbidding as a wall of brick, has made the black ghetto almost psychologically impenetrable to the white man — at a time when many in the ghetto sense that it needs the white man to help it save itself from a kind of psychological secession from a white society,” Mr. Phillips wrote.

Hence the publication followed of a photo essay showing ordinary people doing ordinary things in Harlem.…

from NYmag.com: How an 1890 Townhouse Was Brought Back From Near-Ruin

“Our first visits to our future Harlem house were conducted by flashlight because much of the building had been boarded up. It was impossible to work out what certain parts had once been like. Empty for eight years, it had previously been an SRO, a synagogue and school, and some kind of clinic. Tiny closets held unpleasant bathrooms, stuffed in after the fact. There was graffiti on the walls. The basement held two or three inches of water. The blocked drains had overflowed, ruining the ceilings. …

But it had been built as a grand family home, and behind the iron-spot Roman brick façade lay a stack of four oval rooms. Four! One would have been exciting enough. The house had kept nearly all its original fireplaces and a great deal of its paneling and plasterwork. It had been built in 1890 by the baking-soda magnate John Dwight, co-founder of Arm & Hammer. His initials were embossed in plaster on the dining-room ceiling.

Not long after we bought the house, members of the Dwight family got in touch to say they had photographs of the building from the 1920s, made when the family had left Harlem. Would we be interested?

Would we be interested! The album, together with the original blueprints, answered nearly all of our questions. Every room, except the bathrooms and the cellar, had been photographed. “It’s the Rosetta stone,” said our contractor, Mike Casey. Our architect Sam White (the great-grandson of Stanford White) said he had never worked with such a well-documented house.”

These pictures of the newly-restored Dyckman House museum were taken during a New York Adventure Club “after-hours” tour on Sunday, September 27, 2015. More and better pictures can be seen on the NYAC website/meetup group.


Park Benches at the approach to Dyckman House. The docent said that Dyckman House is the only historic house museum within a city park.


Parks Department sign at the top of the steep stairway to Dyckman House.


Of course, one of the first things you may see as you approach the house is the modern restroom installed by the NYC Parks Dept in the foundation/crawl space area.


The “winter kitchen” on the basement level of the house. This room was used as a kitchen in winter because the fire from the great hearth would heat up the house. On top of the mantelpiece; an old-fashioned flat iron; in the niche on the right, a long-handled pot meant for melting and pouring candle wax.


Exhibit of Colonial-era kitchen utensils found in house/area in the “relic room”. The display case for the utensils atypically contains some present-day artworks by an up-and-coming area artist whose artwork is being shown in the public areas of the house.

The history of the Giglio festival in New York City’s East Harlem, from the “our history” page of the official East Harlem Giglio Society website:

“The first Giglio Feast on 106th street in East Harlem started approximately 1908. Gioacchino Vivolo is credited for being the first Capo Paranza on 106th Street. He along with his brother Rocco Vivolo were members of the Bruscianese Society and were influential in bringing this tradition to East Harlem from Brusciano, Italy. The Festival on 106th Street grew for many years becoming one of the largest street fairs in America and remained that way until 1955. Then in 1957, the festival moved a few blocks uptown to 108th Street where the Dance of the Giglio continued until 1971.

After a 29 year hiatus, the Dance of the Giglio returned to East Harlem in 2000 as a Cooperative Feast with the Shrine Church of Our Lady of Mt Carmel that resides on 115th Street between 1st Avenue and Pleasant Avenue. The Festival enjoyed several great years dancing the Giglio during the Annual Feast of the Our Lady of Mt Carmel festival that takes place each year on July 16th, the feast date of the Madonna.

For the 2006 feast, it was decided to hold the Dance of the Giglio Festival separate from the Annual Our Lady of Mt Carmel feast. The Giglio is now danced in East Harlem on the second Sunday in August.”
