“Cortelyou’s House. This house, built of stone, with a brick gable from eaves to peak, is yet (1852) standing upon the eastern side of the road leading from Brooklyn to Gowanus Creek, looking southeast. In the extreme distance is seen the ‘Yellow Mill’ between which and the one in the foreground so many of the patriots perished."—Lossing, 1851
