National Register of Historic Places

Aloof from the Victorian row houses and parks which constitute much of the district, Ten Broeck Mansion (1797-98) is set on its own spacious ground in the northwest corner of the district.  This handsome federal style house was built for Abraham Ten Broeck, a prominent Revolutionary War figure, delegate to the Continental Congress and later, State Senator and Mayor of Albany. The entire District which now bears his name was once undeveloped land surrounding the mansion, which commanded an unobstructed view down to the Hudson River.
