    Default Looking to Photograph Dutch Colonial Homes/Neighborhoods

    Hello,

    I am looking to photograph some Dutch Colonial style homes in the NY Metro area. Does anyone know where to begin to find these homes or neighborhoods? I was thinking about asking some historians.

    Thanks!

    New York's Hudson valley and most of Northern NJ was the heart of New Netherland, so those counties historical societies might be a good place to start. They may have a map of the oldest homes, many of which would be dutch. I know Bergen County, NJ is full of them. Just about every town has one or more very old Dutch house.

    For one, the Steuben House in River Edge:

    In particular, Rockland and Bergen Counties around Tappan, NY, Old Tappan, NJ, and the tiny town of Rockleigh: http://rockleigh.org/History/Sites/sites.htm
