The Scots Who Built New York’s Landmarks
The American-Scottish Foundation is honored to have been invited to join the Landmarks 50+ project and develop the fascinating history of THE SCOTS WHO BUILT NEW YORK’S LANDMARKS, chronicling the contribution of Scottish Americans to the building of New York.
In February 2017 we look at the Scots part of the development of the City from its Dutch beginnings.
Robert Livingston, a Scot, came to New York in the 1670s and became one of the wealthiest men in the Colony.
Among his business associates was Captain William Kidd, a Scot from Dundee who sailed a privateer, financed by Livingston and others. Later he was accused of being a pirate. Before the accusations Kidd was a prominent Citizen of the City and helped to establish Trinity Church, among other city improvements.
JOHN KINNEAR, Speaker, is Principal of John Kinnear Architects and President of the American Friends of the Georgian Group and has an architectural practice based in Manhattan, which undertakes projects throughout the United States.
The firm is noted for its historical preservation as well as new structures incorporating traditional design styles.
Recent projects include the restoration of the Ruth Mansion in Delaware, 26 Commerce Street in Greenwich Village, and The Queen Elizabeth II September 11th Garden in Hanover Square for which he was the Project Architect.
