Excerpt from Little Miss. By-the-Day
If you'll lend me your pencil a minute I'll show you on the back of this envelope just how that house was situated. You can understand the whole amaz ing story better if you keep in mind how the church on the corner and the rectoty were tucked in beside that great house. For it is a big house, so huge that the six prim brownstones across the street from it look like toy houses. But I've been told that in Brooklyn's early days there was no street, just a long terraced garden that sloped down to the river.
