Deep in the southernmost reaches of Brooklyn, the Hendrick I. Lott house is a living time capsule of Gotham history, an extraordinary survivor from the Age of Discovery—50 years older than America itself, built as Swift began Gulliver's Travels and Bach completed the Brandenburg Concertos; a home to scores of women and men, immigrant and native-born, enslaved and free, who helped transform a wild land into New York City.
