Catalogue Note

A similar view of New York harbor by Birch, painted in 1827, is in the Museum of the City of New York. This view from the southern tip of Manhattan looking toward Staten Island, shows Castle William on the left. Castle William was built on Governor's Island in 1811 and was used to help fortify the harbor during the War of 1812.
