Plans for a Wyckoff House Visitors Center have been in the works for two years, and yesterday the Parks Department filed an application for a new building. The plan calls for a two-story visitors center and caretaker apartment at 5914 Clarendon Road next to the Pieter Claesen Wyckoff House, the city’s oldest structure and now a museum.
As we reported in March, nArchitects is designing the 4,780-square-foot building, which is strategically placed to shield the 17th-century house from the street. The strikingly modern building will house museum activities and displays, event space and administrative offices. GMAP
