Series II: Views

Scope and Contents note

Series II. Views contains two views of New York City made in 1794-1796, while Saint-Mémin was developing his engraving skills. Shortly after arriving in New York with his father, Saint-Mémin was offered a place to stay by John R. Livingston. Both views are from the Brooklyn shoreline, one from Livingston's home at Mount Pitt (near the present day intersection of Henry and Montgomery Streets.)

These prints are housed in a flat file drawer.
