Framebridge vs Heritage Frame

Heritage Frame & Picture Co. founded in 1878 in lower Manhattan as New York Frame & Picture Co, is one of the oldest, experienced and respected art, mirror and picture framing shops in New York.

Heritage Frame is also one of the leading corporate framing and art restoration businesses. As a result, it is common for people searching to have their pictures and art framed to compare Heritage Frame to many of the new companies in existence. One of the art framing companies in question is Framebridge.

Framebridge is a new start-up online framing company founded by Susan Tynan. Her entry into the picture framing business a few years ago is as a result of her purchasing artwork on a trip and need to transport it home without the frame it came with. According to her story on her website, she was then inspired to offer low-cost picture frames to people who want to frame their art or photos.

While a great story of entrepreneurship and we are happy to see Framebridge enter the market, our business model and clients are different. Heritage Frame offers high-end quality art and picture frames whereas Framebridge sells to mass markets similar to Walmart and Target but with the added benefits of having someone frame your artwork and ship it back to you.

Most of Heritage Frames clients are art collectors, corporate framing clients, interior designers, hotels, resorts, timeshares, airports, law firms, banks, commercial and residential buildings, museums and art galleries. Our custom art, mirror, and picture frames are designed to last a lifetime and to enhance the value of the artwork. In addition, we install art in your home, office, or at your corporate event.

Our custom art framers are skilled artisans who work with you to select the frame you desire and help you choose the proper matting and installation hardware. Heritage Frame is known for excellent customer service and for our large assortment of superb quality art frames. We are not a mass market photo framing company. Our business is built on one-on-one service.

In addition to corporate and commercial art and picture framing, Heritage Frame is one of the few highly experienced art restoration companies. Art restoration requires a depth of knowledge and expertise that takes years to develop. We have restored artwork damaged in floods, fire, mold, mildew, as well as artwork that has been torn. Some of our art restoration work comes from other custom art framing shops who trust us to remedy the problem.

Another source of our custom picture framing work is from corporate event planners. We work with event planners to install art in places where there will be an abundance of traffic and safety is an issue. Another concern is to have the art installed so it is protected from either theft, falling or damage. We work with event planners at grand openings, award ceremonies, anniversaries, historic displays and for conferences.

Tarrytown Custom Art Framing Shop

Heritage Frame & Picture Co. is Tarrytown’s most well known and experienced custom art framing shops. Heritage Frame is a 4th generation art framing shop founded in 1878. The original location, NY Frame, was started in lower Manhattan, New York. Over the years, business has worked with banks, financial institutions, law firms, restaurants, the music industry, hotels, sport teams, galleries, museums, photographers and private art collectors.

Ted Howell, owner of Heritage Frame, has been designing custom art and picture frames since he was a child. Working with his father, who learned how to build art frames from his father, Ted discovered at an early age an appreciation for providing quality products and excellent customer service.

Unlike many other framing shops, Ted Howell also provides custom art framing for small and large businesses. Framing for businesses, also known as corporate framing, industrial framing and commercial framing, is one of the niches that makes Heritage Frame so successful. Corporate framing requires Ted to work directly with corporate event planners, CEO’s, building managers, art directors, photographers as well as artist to design the perfect frame to fit the decor or theme the business is conveying.

As a result, commercial art framing is a time intensive framing job. In addition to helping clients select the right custom art frame, it also requires the art works to be installed at the business or at their events. Art installation in commercial spaces must be installed with the idea of safety and security in mind. Choosing the right hardware, the right location to install the art and at the right height on the wall comes from experience.

Heritage Frame is widely considered one of the premier corporate framing shops in the country. Though they are located in Tarrytown, New York, many of Heritage Frame & Picture Co’s corporate and business framing clients are located throughout the United States. In addition to corporate framing clients in New York City, Heritage Frame also provides commercial and industrial framing in New Jersey, Philadelphia, Boston, Phoenix, Chicago, Miami, West Palm Beach, Las Vegas, DC, Connecticut, Virginia and Maryland.

Additional services provided include art restoration. Heritage Frame restores art and can reframe works. Whether your art was damage in a flood, smoke damage or the frame has been broken or chipped, Heritage Frame has expertise to restore your art, portraits and pictures.

Our framing, art restoration and art installation business has lasted this many years because we love what we do and truly care about our customers and clients. Heritage Frame is a family owned business that wants to do business with your business or family for years. We do what it takes to make our work the best.

It is served by the Metro-North Harlem River commuter rail line into Grand Central Terminal. Hartsdale is the home of America's first canine pet cemetery (started by veterinarian Samuel Johnson in 1896), and the world's first Carvel Ice Cream store (1934), which closed in 2008.[1]

Hartsdale's earliest settlers were the Weekquaeskeeks (sometimes spelled Weekquasgeeks), a sub-tribe of the Algonquian tribe that lived in most of southern New York, from Westchester down through Manhattan. Weekquaeskeek is an Algonquian term believed to mean "place of the bark kettle", and this kettle appears in the Greenburgh town seal today.

After the earliest British colonialists arrived, the area was developed under the manor system when Frederick Philipse, a Dutch merchant and British Loyalist, was "given" the land by the British government. As lord of his Philipse Manor, he leased his land to tenant farmers who, at least for a time, were believed to have lived alongside their Native American neighbors.

There is evidence to show that Hartsdale played a significant role during the Revolutionary War, some of which still stands today. On October 28, 1776, a Revolutionary War battle was fought alongside the Bronx River, near the site of the current Hartsdale train station. The Odell House (on Ridge Road, built in 1732) served as the headquarters for the French general the Comte de Rochambeau, and is where the count and George Washington are supposed to have formed an alliance leading to the Battle of Yorktown. The house was later named after John Odell, Washington's guide who bought the house in 1785. In 1965, his descendants deeded the house to the Sons of the American Revolution, and today the house is in severe decay, awaiting funds to transform it into a museum.

After the Continental Army and American colonialists won the Revolutionary War, Frederick Philipse III (third lord of the manor and great-grandson to Frederick Philipse I) fled, his land was confiscated and sold to the remaining farming tenants, many of whom were descendants of the Hart family. The intersection of Central Park Avenue and Hartsdale Avenue was named "Hart's Corners" after Robert Hart, one of these farmers who successfully bid for the land, and in the mid-19th century the entire area became known as "Hartsdale".

The area remained largely agrarian until 1865, when Eleazar Hart deeded land for the development of the New York and Harlem Railroad line into Manhattan, setting the stage for Hartsdale to change into a more cosmopolitan commuter village. Between 1880 and 1940, large tracts of farmland and estates were subdivided and converted into private houses and apartments at a furious pace. By the 1960s, almost no remaining farmland was left for sale.

In 1904, the successful German-Jewish banker Felix M. Warburg (1871–1937) purchased large tracts of land to build his 500-acre (2.0 km2) "Woodlands" estate in Hartsdale, a summer home next to the country club where he and his wife Frieda Schiff Warburg (1876–1958) spent considerable time. The estate would later become an important site in the history of modern American ballet, when on June 10, 1934, their son Edward M. M. Warburg (1908–1992) helped produce the first American performance of George Balanchine's masterpiece "Serenade". In keeping with the family's philanthropic efforts, Frieda Schiff Warburg, on her death in 1958, bequeathed a remaining 150 acres (0.61 km2) to the town of Greenburgh to build a public school. These 150 acres (0.61 km2) are now the home of the Greenburgh Central School District (formerly called Greenburgh Central 7 School District) and Woodlands High School. The main Warburg mansion currently serves as the school district headquarters, but other remnants from the original estate grounds can still be seen standing in the surrounding woods and neighboring streets. The Warburg family's New York City home would later be donated to become the Jewish Museum of New York.

On February 9, 1928, Hartsdale made history when the Scottish inventor John Logie Baird (1888–1946) transmitted the world's first inter-continental short-wave television signal from a transmitter (call sign 2KZ) in Coulsdon, Surrey (a suburb of London) to his colleague O. G. Hutchinson in the cellar of Robert M. Hart, an amateur radio operator (call sign 2CVJ) in Hartsdale.[5]

In 1932, Henry Jacques Gaisman, inventor and founder of the Gillette safety razor blade, purchased 136 acres (0.55 km2) of land along Ridge Road, most of which he purchased from George A. C. Christiancy, son of the former U.S. minister to PeruIsaac Peckham Christiancy. In 1952, at age 82, Gaisman married his nurse Catherine "Kitty" Vance Gaisman, aged 33, a former Catholic nun. In 1957, he and his wife Catherine (Mrs. Henry J. Gaisman) passed the title for his land to the New York Archdiocese for $600,000, with the agreement that they could live there as long as they wished. Mr. Gaisman died in 1974 at age 104, and Mrs. Gaisman remained on the estate until she moved to Connecticut in 1995. In 1999, the estate was saved from sale and development when the Town of Greenburgh acquired the property and reopened it as the Hart's Brook Nature Preserve. Part of the agreement included the preservation of some portion of the estate as a home for retired Catholic nuns. Today the Catherine and Henry J. Gaisman Foundation continues to donate large amounts of money to support medical research.
