Dr. Tieck’s book should be available as a reference book at the Spuyten Duyvil library or Riverdale Library. It  is usually not on the reference shelf anylonger as it has gotten stolen many times.  Usually if you ask the librarian they have it behind the counter that you can read while at the library.

Regarding information on the Rosa Bonheur or McKelvey’s I agree with Nick that while a beautiful and interesting designed building it was not very old. Especially considering that when the Kingsbridge Historical Society was founded back in 1949 or when the book was published 1968, it was a relatively new building.  Much as we think of  today the The Whitehal on HH Pkwy  or the Century.
