The Rose and Crown Tavern stone marker
General William Howe was billeted with his aides-de-camp in this farmhouse and tavern at New Dorp, Staten Island, in 1776, when 30,000 British and Hessian soldiers were encamped on the island, awaiting orders to take Long Island and invade New York Citymarker (which then comprised only the island of Manhattanmarker and faced Staten Islandmarker across New York Harbour). The general was known to have read the Declaration of Independence to his troops at this tavern. All that remains is a stone marker at the corner of New Dorp Lane and Richmond Road.
