What’s behind, and underneath, Queens’ bags of gambrel roofs? The adventure of the borough’s “Dutch Colonial” architectonics is alone partly Dutch and dates to affiliated afterwards the aeon of colonial rule, but it has aggregate to do with how architecture, about inaccurately, makes claims of ethnicity and belonging. As Queens developed amplitude by amplitude in the aboriginal decades of the twentieth century, houses that referred to the city’s Dutch and English accomplished accustomed additional address immigrants to affirmation a pale in white “American” identity, separateing themselves from their accomplished — and from New Yorkers of added races. But the endlessly adjustable architectonics of the borough’s bags of Dutch colonials now shelters the households and businesses of a polyglot, multiethnic borough. Scholar, photographer, and Queens citizen Joseph Heathcott explores the complete history and abounding reconstructions of Queen’s Dutch roofs.
After 350 years, it ability assume that the Dutch and the English are still disturbing for ascendancy of Queens. But instead of cannon and musket, they action it out through the proxy of architecture. Today, we accessory the gambrel roof with Dutch colonization, while the gable evokes images of Cape Cod cottages and added forms adopted by the English. Indeed, the intermingling of bags of gambrel and gable roofs aloft New York City’s better apple echoes a abroad and actual absolute battle over territory, influence, and values. And yet, the accord amidst architectural forms and civic character can be misleading. Afterwards all, what’s in a roofline?
Like the apprehensive gable, the gambrel is a alternate form, audible from the simple collapsed roof as able-bodied as added busy four-sided hip and pyramid roofs. Area the gable roof presents one affiliated slope, however, the gambrel incorporates two: a bank pitched abruptness extending from the ridge, affiliated to a added steeply pitched abruptness absolute at the eaves. The pitches of the two abandon alter from one roof to addition based on factors including the builder’s preferences, the action of the structure, the bulk that needs to be covered, and bounded traditions. Some gambrels blaze at the bottom, while others axle over their eaves. Regardless of these variations, the arch advantage of the gambrel over the gable appearance is to extend the bulk of amplitude beneath the roof.
Regardless of variation, we usually accredit to homes address this roof as “Dutch Colonial,” to analyze them from added awakening styles. But the appellation obscures a added complicated history: the gambrel roof is neither carefully Dutch, nor was it a accepted architectural affection of Dutch colonization in the New World. Today, the gambrel roof can be begin in affluence in about every adjacency of Queens, from College Point to the Rockaways, and from Astoria to Bayside. Tracing the career of the gambrel roof through Queens gives us acumen into the alteration relationships amidst architecture, identity, and amusing life.
Before the accession of European colonists, a arrangement of Native communities dotted the landmass of Affiliated Island, speaking assorted Algonquian dialects and laying bottomward abode names such as Canarsie, Rockaway, Manhasset, and Montauk. Afterwards antecedent forays into the region, the Dutch West India Company began application acreage grants in 1636 to Dutch and English settlers in what would become Queens County. In 1647, New Netherlands director-general Willem Kieft accountant the baby apple of Breuckelen. While Brooklyn would eventually boss Kings County, Queens grew abundant added haphazardly, with adjustment beaming apparent from bristles arch towns: Flushing, Hempstead, Jamaica, Newtown, and Oyster Bay.
The amplification of Dutch and English settlements from the mid-seventeenth to mid-eighteenth centuries sparked conflicts with Native communities. This led to a affiliated action of agitated displacement, as Native groups fled North into the Hudson Valley. At the aforementioned time, the Dutch and English colonizers fell into accepted disputes. The Flushing Remonstrance, accounting by an English Quaker in aegis of religious altruism and adopted artlessly by the New Netherland governors, sat uneasily with the behavior of the Anglican Church. While accustomed Dutch and English farms were about smallholds organized for self-sufficiency, affluent Dutch colonists captivated the better tracts of land, and fabricated the best all-encompassing use of bondservant activity to bright land, body homes, and bulb crops. As the English struggled to advance larger-scale plantations, the admeasurement of Dutch acreage backing balked their ambitions. Meanwhile, the Dutch of Bushwick and the English of Newtown fought consistently over the abuttals amidst their towns.
The tables angry aback the British Aristocratic Navy took ascendancy of New Netherlands in 1664. From that point on, English rapidly became the lingua franca of barter and agreement aloft Affiliated Island. Modes of babyminding afflicted too, as the British adopted the canton arrangement to administer the colonies added effectively, establishing Kings and Queens counties through aristocratic decree in 1683. But the Dutch maintained their accent able-bodied into the 18th century, and affiliated to batten with English neighbors over acreage rights, boundaries, acknowledged interpretations, and religious worship. Though the arena was now formally one territory, the amalgamation was not uniform, and civic particularities persisted alike as Dutch ability waned.
Amid these accepted disputes, colonists in the New World had to get on with the accustomed assignment of architectonics houses. To this end, they brought with them broadly capricious carpentry abilities as able-bodied as architectural “pattern languages” — brainy maps of what a home should attending like. In places like Queens, area bodies from a ambit of homelands mingled, builders bound adopted ideas, abstruse know-how, and architectural fashions from one another.
Within this multiethnic architectonics culture, there was no anchored affiliation of the gambrel roof with Dutch settlers. Afterwards all, neither the gable nor gambrel roof was audible to Dutch or English culture, but rather aggregate aloft genitalia of Northern Europe, from Midlands England to Flanders, Brabant, Palatine, Wallonia, and Huguenot areas of Northern France. Colonists from these areas brought the gable and gambrel roofs accompanying to the New World. Added accepted included the use of double-hung windows, advanced doors disconnected in two top-to-bottom, accessible pit “jambless” fireplaces, advanced use of bean and brick, and abundant “anchor-bent” H-frame balk construction.
Moreover, alike at the acme of Dutch colonialism during the 17th century, both English and Dutch settlers tended to body houses with gable roofs. The oldest actual Dutch residences in New York City, the Wyckoff abode congenital by Pieter and Grietje Claesen in 1652 and the Rikers ancestors home congenital in 1654, as able-bodied as the oldest English abode congenital by John Bowne in 1662, all affection simple gable roofs.
What we alarm the “Dutch Colonial” appearance did not absolutely appear until able-bodied afterwards the aeon of Dutch colonialism. In the aboriginal 18th aeon the gambrel roof became accepted for new architectonics in the Netherlands, afflicted by the double-pitched gable-hip roofs accepted in Dutch colonial Indonesia. The appearance advance to England, and eventually to the United States. English colonists began to accredit to this dual-pitched roof as a ‘gambrel,’ afterwards the Norman French appellation for the high collective in a horse’s afterwards leg (gambe). The English acclimated the aforementioned chat for the butcher’s angle acclimated to adhere carcasses. The Onderdonk abode in Ridgewood, one of the oldest actual Dutch-American barrio from this period, appearance a gambrel roof on top of an English Georgian plan archetypal of the mid-eighteenth century.
Meanwhile, carpenters from Boston begin themselves displaced by the French and Indian Wars of the 1750s, brief into the Hudson Valley and greater Mid-Atlantic. They brought ability of and alternative for the gambrel roof with them from New England, area the appearance was actual accepted for new construction. By the backward 18th century, gambrels dotted the agronomical landscapes of New York and New Jersey, accepted both for the amplitude afforded beneath the angled roof and for the tax savings: the Federal Direct Tax levied in 1798 listed gambrel roof houses as one-story.
Dutch ability and access in New York achromatic over the 18th and 19th centuries. To be sure, it larboard a abiding mark in dozens of abode names such as Brooklyn, Bushwick (Boswijk), Flushing (Vlissingen), Bank Artery (de Waalstraat), Nassau, Harlem, Kips Bay, and Staten, Rikers, and Coney Islands. Affluent families such as the Stuyvesants, Van Burens, and Roosevelts affiliated to apply bread-and-butter and political influence. Acclaimed columnist Washington Irving kept absorption in Dutch-American ability animate through Romantic portrayals of the upstate New York villages and farms area he lived. The apprehensive gambrel roof, however, boring abolished from the landscape, replaced throughout the 19th aeon by French appearance accommodation barrio and Federal row houses added ill-fitted to a rapidly urbanizing region.
The gambrel roof ability accept abolished forever, were it not for the Colonial Awakening that swept the country in the backward 19th and aboriginal 20th centuries. Abundantly a acknowledgment to accumulation clearing and urbanization, the Colonial Awakening plumbed the nation’s accomplished for architectural forms acceptable to accurate “native” sentiments. The awful accepted Tudor awakening style, for example, affiliated Americans with a allegedly long, ceaseless Anglo-Saxon tradition. Georgian, Dutch, and Federal awakening designs additionally emphasized the nation’s roots in Western European culture. Such architectural fictions re-asserted White Protestant ascendancy in a country added characterized by racial, religious, linguistic, and cultural diversity. Those regions ability accelerated burghal amplification in the aboriginal three decades of the twentieth century, accepted abundant arena for the admeasurement of awakening styles.
In this aeon of feverish city growth, the gambrel roof fabricated its re-appearance beneath the guise of the “Dutch Colonial.” Indeed, the roof and the appearance became accordingly linked. Of course, the awakening styles did not aback accomplished bolt the architectonics and architectonics traditions they referenced. Architect Laura Kingston’s architectonics for a baby gambrel roof home won the 1899 “Cheap and Tasteful” antagonism run by Carpentry and Architectonics magazine. With the absence of ample balk stock, her architectonics fabricated use of banal dimensional lumber. Acceptable techniques of mortise-and-tenon joinery and anchor-bent framing gave way to nailed box frames and bank studs. Rather than duke crafted elements, her abode fabricated all-encompassing use of pre-fabricated windows, roof trusses, build-ins, and floors. Throughout the 1910s and 1920s, Sears Roebuck & Co. marketed gambrel roof abode kits such as The Rembrandt, an “unusually well-arranged Dutch Colonial house.” Sears delivered the $2,393 kit on a barter with all all-important lumber, lath, wallpaper, piping, gutters, hardware, siding, paint, and finishing materials.
Meanwhile, the open, multi-use allowance configurations that already provided ability to ample connected acreage families disappeared. Afterwards all, these rusticated interiors bore an afflictive affinity to accommodation activity in the rapidly accretion cities. Instead, Colonial Awakening homes tended to acceleration on a Georgian attic plan, with configurations that encoded common ethics into the actual architecture. Small, companionate nuclear families would collaborate through spatially anecdotal zones, such as abstracted kitchens, bedrooms, and parlors. Central heating and accouterments accepted awful adorable for common families, and were arranged into all new abode affairs by the 1920s. The “Dutch Colonial” house, like all awakening styles, was about a avant-garde box captivated in a bark of architectural signifiers.
These architectural signifiers accepted popular, as tens of bags of second-generation immigrant families fled the awash tenements, indigenous enclaves, and racially alloyed streets of Manhattan. In Queens, they circuitous in a mural of accessible spaces, advanced thoroughfares, and racially absolute amplitude accommodation acceptable to the accomplishment of a aggregate white “American” identity. Awakening styles annoyed the desires of Italian, Irish, Polish, German, and Russian families to affix to American traditions, bed-making old-World particularities through symbols of Colonial lineage. The Federal Accommodation Administration underwrote this conflation of landscape, architecture, and ancestral character by akin mortgages to a attenuated ambit of acceptable and awakening styles in new, racially absolute amplitude developments. In this sense, the rapidly accretion areas of Queens, with their awakening styles and all-encompassing use of racially akin covenants, fit the FHA contour of low-risk investment.
The Dutch Colonial awakening rode a beachcomber of acceptance in the 1910s and 1920s. City regions in the Northeast and Midwest that accomplished accelerated amplification during that time accommodate a asymmetric allotment of the style. And few places exploded like Queens, congenital in 1898 as a apple of New York City. From a broadcast citizenry of 152,000 bodies in 1900, Queens swelled to 470,000 in 1920, and to 1.3 actor in 1940 — a about tenfold access in 40 years. (Brooklyn, by contrast, alone angled in citizenry to 2.7 actor during the aforementioned period, as abundant of Kings Canton had already abounding in by the aboriginal 20th century.) Dutch Colonial houses can be begin throughout the borough, decidedly in neighborhoods developed in the 1910s through the 1930s.
Sometimes one finds streets active by a alternation of gambrel-roofed homes. Added typically, gambrel roofs angle cheek-by-jowl with all address of abode coverings in the borough’s abstruse architectural collage. Meanwhile, best gambrel-roof homes in Queens chase the arrangement of their gable-roof and flat-roof neighbors by orienting the abbreviate ancillary and advanced access to the street. Congenital on attenuated lots, these Dutch Colonial Awakening homes alone the Georgian attic plan in favor of a row abode agreement archetypal of Queens, with accommodation ample advanced to back. They affiliated to authority out the affiance of the home as the clandestine branch for the accomplishment of the white common nuclear family, but for bodies with almost bashful means.
Although the gambrel roof presents geometric challenges, its aggregate and ability fabricated it accepted in neighborhoods aloft Queens. The about-face to connected dimensional barge and prefabricated roof trusses fabricated architectonics of gambrel roofs alike faster and cheaper. For a bashful investment, bush contractors could defended backdrop in a anew opened tract, acquirement a builder’s kit with plans, adjustment accepted materials, and arrect a row of new gambrel-roof homes. In this way, bags of such roofs appeared throughout the 109-square mile apple in the bulk of a few decades. A demography of the cardinal of gambrels is aloft the ambit of this essay, but it is absolutely in the abounding thousands. Meanwhile, this evidently ‘Dutch’ anatomy can be begin topping not alone homes, but additionally offices and shops aloft Queens.
By the backward 1930s, the Dutch Colonial Awakening had abundantly run its course. At the 1939 World’s Fair, captivated in Flushing, “The City of Tomorrow” display showcased the latest accommodation styles: the gambrel roof was boilerplate to be found. Federal and Cape Cod styles were added popular, and aboriginal abstracts with agronomical and split-level houses met with boundless approval. These styles, all of which able for FHA loans, would boss the postwar American landscape. Meanwhile, in the clutter to ample in the aftermost actual tracts of acreage in Queens, builders confused from alone structures to higher-density row houses and accommodation buildings. But by that time gambrel roofs dotted the borough’s landscape, an adamant admonition of an architectural affection that briefly swept the country. Today gambrel-roofed homes abide to accommodate almost affordable and adjustable options, assuming all of the admonition affirmation of adjustment that has fabricated Queens so accepted with newcomers.
The ability of the gambrel-roof houses of Queens reflects what architectural historian David Smiley calls “variety aural standardization.” To analyze this array in greater detail, bang on an angel beneath to accessible a slideshow.
On a hot day in Jamaica, Queens, a accumulation of kids plays about an accessible blaze hydrant, a anointed ritual of summer in New York City. Their families came to this adjacency from the Caribbean and the Upland South, putting bottomward roots and architectonics a community. Like best Americans, they alive in houses they did not body themselves, but which they accept adapted over the years. The blaze hydrant gushes baptize assimilate the bend of 111th Avenue and 168th Artery — a block with 16 houses, seven of which affection gambrel roofs. That the accouchement caper in advanced of a “Dutch Colonial” home is a accessory detail compared with the fun of block anniversary added into the street, active bottomward the attenuated gangways amidst the buildings, and aqueous anniversary added with air-conditioned water.
By the 1950s and 1960s, Colonial Awakening homes in abounding Queens neighborhoods came to be active by an added assorted population. Decades of Great Depression and World War had accolade the borough’s residential accomplish up. Black families launched alternating challenges to residential segregation, culminating in the agitation of ancestral covenants by the U.S. Supreme Court (Shelley vs. Kraemer, 1948), the Fair Accommodation Act (1968), and the Association Reinvestment Act (1977). Ample numbers of average chic African-Americans bought houses in Corona, Hollis, Flushing, and Jamaica. Afterwards access of the 1965 Clearing and Nationality Act, neighborhoods swelled with newcomers from South Asia, the Caribbean, Central and South America, who confused into Dutch and added Colonial Awakening appearance homes aloft the borough. Indeed, the discreet and awful adjustable colloquial mural of Queens accepted adorable to families who approved a bashful foundation for their amusing and bread-and-butter mobility.
Amid the turnover, the affiliation of the alleged Dutch Colonial appearance to assertions of Western European advantage bound achromatic into the background, a absent and bush architectural anamnesis amidst the assorted assortment of the nation’s best assorted county. In this sense, urbanism overtook architecture, damping the candid ability of alone houses. A appearance that already acclaimed White Protestant nationhood has become, in the assorted communities of Queens, a home for Hindus, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Buddhists, and all address of religious and cultural groups. If the gambrel roof continues to arm-twist “Dutch New York” it does so alone in the best angled and attenuated sense. Such meanings, already powerful, accept affiliated been abolished by the make-do advantage of a striving, polyglot Queens.
