New Visitors Center Coming to Flatbush’s Wyckoff House


Next Tuesday, April 10th, the Landmarks Preservation Commission will hear a request to add a new visitor’s center at Flatbush’s Pieter Claesen Wyckoff House, the city’s oldest structure, which is now used as a museum. We spoke with a representative at the Wyckoff House who said the new building will obviously look more modern than the 17th Century structure, but the design will be very sympathetic to the original in terms of color and aesthetic. The slope of the roof on the vistors center is also similar to that of the Wyckoff House. The plan hasn’t been finalized yet with the architects and the construction timeline remains unclear. Check back here for updates on the project as it moves through Landmarks. GMAP
