Percy Pyne-Elie Nadelman House (Alderbrook House)
4715 Independence Avenue, Riverdale, Bronx Overlooking the Hudson River in the Riverdale neighborhood of the Bronx, the Alderbrook House is a rare example of a mid-19thcentury Hudson River villa in New York City. Probably built by Oscar C. and Ada Woodworth Ferris between 1858 and 1859, Alderbrook is one of the two oldest villas in The Park-Riverdale, an exclusive residential development begun in 1856, and the only one of ParkRiverdale’s early villas to remain in use as a single-family residence. From 1864 into the 1890s, it was the country house of industrialist and banker Percy R. Pyne, his wife Albertina Taylor Pyne, and their three children; following Percy’s 1895 death, Alderbrook fell into disuse until its purchase in 1921 by Viola Nadelman, the wife of the renowned sculptor Elie Nadelman, to serve as the couple’s summer home. Born in Poland in 1882, Elie Nadelman was recognized in 1911 as being within “the first rank of present-day artists.” He moved to New York in 1914 and married Viola five years later. In the early 1920s, the Nadelmans began amassing a folk art collection that was without peer in the United States and one of the finest in the world, and in 1926 they opened the first folk art museum in the country, located west of the Alderbrook House near Palisade Avenue, to house their collection. Following the 1929 stock market crash, they moved full-time to Alderbrook, where Elie created hundreds of small plaster figures, inspired by ancient Greek votive figures, that came to define his late career. He committed suicide at Alderbrook in 1946, but Viola, who played a key role in promoting her husband’s legacy, continued to live at Alderbrook until her death in 1962. Major retrospectives of Nadelman’s work were mounted at the Museum of Modern Art in 1948, and at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1975 and 2003. Influenced by the designs and publications of Andrew Jackson Downing and Calvert Vaux, Alderbrook is a picturesque residence, exhibiting both Italianate and Gothic Revival characteristics. Remarkably well-preserved, the house retains its generous veranda, gabled roofline featuring deep flared eaves, brackets, and gable trusses, and tall brick chimneys with grouped flues and decorative niches. Few Hudson River villas remain in New York City; with its exceptional connection to a renowned 20thcentury artist and his work, Alderbrook is truly unique. DESCRIPTION AND ANALYSIS The Early Development of Riverdale Before the arrival of European settlers, present-day Riverdale, like most of the Metropolitan Area, was the territory of Lenape Indians. Under the Dutch, in 1646, the land between the Bronx and Hudson rivers extending from the Harlem River to what is now Yonkers’ northern boundary came under the patroonship of Adriaen Van der Donck, whose honorific title jonkheer (“squire”) gave Yonkers its name. Most of Van der Donck’s property was later acquired by Frederick Philipse I, who owned ship, lumber, and lime-kiln businesses, rented land to farmers, and was active in the African and West Indian slave trades; his land was confiscated by the state after Philipse’s great-grandson, a Loyalist, fled to England with his family during the American Revolution. In 1785, the old Manor of Philipsburg was divided into parcels and sold off, and much of present-day Riverdale was acquired by George and William Hadley, two local men who were farmers and slaveholders. At that time, present-day Riverdale lay within the Township of Yonkers in southern Westchester County; it would ultimately be annexed by New York City, along with the rest of the western Bronx, in 1874. By the late 1830s and 1840s, well-to-do city dwellers increasingly sought to escape to the country for the summer. Artists, writers, reformers, transcendentalists, religious leaders, and politicians promoted a view of the countryside as fostering health, virtue, and democratic values; cities, by contrast, were often associated with congestion, disease, poverty, corruption, vice, and stifling summer heat. Between 1830 and 1850, New York City more than doubled in size to over 500,000 residents, most of whom lived below 42nd Street. During this period, many of the city’s established residential areas were threatened by industrial and commercial encroachment, and sizeable professional and merchant classes emerged, whose members settled new neighborhoods throughout the city but also had the desire and means to maintain their own country houses. The Hudson Valley’s scenic charms and advantages as a location for country houses were already well-known: by the 1830s, Thomas Cole was attracting wide attention for his romantic Hudson Valley landscapes, Washington Irving was building Sunnyside, his picturesque riverside cottage near Tarrytown, New York, and one observer noted, in 1835, that the valley was particularly “adapted … for villas and country seats…. The day is not distant when the entire banks of the Hudson will be dotted with vil
