Building Community: The Architecture of the Rhinelander Family

The history of New York real estate and architecture is awash in German-American heritage, counting among its ranks such tycoons as John Jacob Astor and John G. Wendel. But in Yorkville, no name stands out as prominently as Rhinelander. One of New York’s most prominent early land-owning families, the Rhinelanders arrived in New York in the late 17th century, and began developing their holdings in Yorkville in the 1880s, as the neighborhood’s growing immigrant communities made the area a magnet for progressive housing reform. On this tour, led by FRIENDS' President Franny Eberhart, we’ll explore highlights of the Hardenhergh/Rhinelander Historic District, focusing on how the family’s community-minded architectural commissions, and significant philanthropy, left a rich architectural and social legacy in the neighborhood. Along the way, we’ll see some of the city’s first “Modern” apartment buildings, learn what the “French Flat” has to do with Yorkville’s German heritage, and discover the district’s “verdant treasure.”
