Hartsdale, a CDP/hamlet/post-office in the town of Greenburgh, New York, lies on the Bronx River just 20 miles (32 km) north ofNew York City. 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.
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.
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 Peru, Isaac 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.
WOW. Isn't that an exciting read. So the next time you need to decorate or want to display photos, artwork, old newspaper articles, letters or other antiques, you can probably find a whole assortment in your own backyard in Hartsdale.

If you would like to read more about the history of Hartsdale, here is the link to the page.
Ossining Picture and Mirror Frame shop, Heritage Frame & Picture Co. , has the largest variety of wood, silver, gold, museum quality, metal and antique frames in NY.
Heritage Picture and Frame Co. located in Tarrytown, NY provides custom picture framing, mirror framing, art restoration and art installation for Ossining residents and business owners. Many Ossining art collectors, business owners, interior designers and families recommend Heritage Frame and have done so for more than 75 years. In addition to being located near Ossining, Ted Howell, owner and master frame craftsmen, makes private appointments where he meets with you at your business or home.
Heritage Frame is one of the few custom picture framing companies that makes house calls. Determined to provide excellent customer service, Ted has continued the tradition started 140 years ago by his great grandfather who opened the families first shop in lower Manhattan. Since then, Ted has now taken over the family business and believes providing a quality product with excellent service, Heritage Frame can one day be passed onto his children as it was to him.
As the framing business has grown and technology entered the picture and art framing business, some things began to change. Some of the changes are the lack of expert custom framing craftsman. Expert craftsman like Ted understand the value of selecting high quality wood and metals along with equally high quality matting and hardware. Today, many mass produced frames are made with cheap plastics or compressed wood and do not enhance the art, photo, portrait, diploma, poster or memorabilia within.
Instead, these low quality retail frames cheapen the art and do little to preserve its original condition. What is rarely know is that in some instances, the picture frame is an essential part of preserving the art so the are is not subjected to the elements. In other cases, the picture frame is chosen to capture the ambience of the room, home or business in which the art or mirror is hung. so, the frame selection and quality are essential. Furthermore, the frame is just as important as the picture.
Yes, there are many discount frames that can be bought online as well as at the local Walmart, Michael's, Target and mall. But, these frames are not of the same quality, look or feel as a custom wood or metal art or picture frame.
We believe, the frame is as important as the art. They complement one another and this relationship between the two is inseparable. Even when re-framing, which is the removing of an old frame, one feels some attachment to the old frame. This is because the frame is in many ways part of the experience.
Over the years, we have worked with many interior designers, galleries, artists , collectors and photographers in Ossining. During this time we have heard the stories of why the art was chosen, who the people are in the portrait or even the journey of obtaining the diploma or degree. It is these stories that make our job memorable.
Our framing shop being conveniently located near Ossining means many of our clients come to our shop in Tarrytown to see our new frames and to learn about the picture framing process. Maybe we are a bit sentimental, but for us at Heritage Frame, each picture, family photo, artwork, diploma, poster, memorabilia, mirror or object we frame has a story attached to it and we work with that in mind.
Framing, art restoration and art installation is more than a business. It is our expression of service and art appreciation. We understand a picture hung on a wall can be there for many years to come. During this time, it is making a statement.
As the quote says, " A picture paints a thousand words."
Furthermore we feel a picture can touch a thousand lives. So if you need your family portrait, artwork, diploma or other collectible framed, know that with us, it is in good hands.
By the way, we pick up and ship everywhere. We treat your art and photos with care and make certain it is protected in transit and when it arrives at our framing shop.
Again, if you are looking or searching for a picture or art framing shop in or near Ossining NY, Heritage Frame is the one to call.
We give FREE picture framing estimates as well as FREE art restoration and art installation quotes.
Please call Heritage Frame at 914-332-5200. Ted Howell is always available to speak with you and answer your picture framing questions. He can also schedule a private appointment for you to come to the shop or for Ted to meet with you in Ossining.

Custom picture frames vs. discount pictures?
If you are like most people, when you want to frame your photos, artwork, memorabilia or posters, this question arises.
In this article, you will discover why picture frames are not all the same. In fact, discount frames and custom pictures frames both have their specific purposes, customers and consumer markets.If you are in NY or even in places like Scarsdale and White Plains, and are looking for picture, photo or art frames, there seems to be endless stores to buy from or online.
In fact, the picture framing industry has been experiencing a boom in the last 5 years. The reason is that almost everyone takes pictures today. There is a camera on your phone, your tablet and computer. In addition, many people email and text pictures back and forth. This has led to more people needing picture frames now more than ever.
Have you ever wondered why some picture frames cost $5 and some frames cost thousands of dollars? If you walk the streets of midtown Manhattan or even Astoria, Queens, there are picture frames being sold on street corners and in stores like Walmart, Target and Michaels. While other less known places, have custom frames, like Heritage Frame & Picture Co. have walls full of frames that need to be fitted and assembled costing much more than $5.
Could you imagine paying $3,000 for a piece of art and then framing it in a $15 frame?
That is the reason many of our art framing customers in Armonk, Chappaqua and Scarsdale call us to custom frame their artwork. Art collectors and those who appreciate art, realize the frame is part of the art and the feeling it invokes. Of course, it is not the price of the frame that makes it a match to the artwork, it is the quality of the frame. Hence, the higher the quality the more the frame costs.
If you said no to the above questions, then you already understand why custom made picture, art and photo frames cost more than mass produced discount frames.
With most of our picture framing customers in New York, Westchester County as well as throughout the 5 NYC boroughs of Queens, Bronx, Brooklyn, Staten Island and of course, Manhattan, we answer those question all the time.
Many of our competitors who sell picture frames in Queens, Manhattan as well as Scarsdale, Chappaqua, White Plains and Pound Ridge - offer cheap low quality picture frames. While we, Heritage Frame & Picture Co. (www.HeritageFrame.com) only sell high quality custom picture and art frames. We have been in the custom framing, art restoration and art installation business for almost 140 years. And we are proud to say that pictures we framed more than 100 years ago, are still sitting in those frames today.
Why choose a custom picture frame by Heritage Frame & Picture Co. over mass produced, discounted retail frames?
To being with, our custom picture frames are of much higher quality than mass produced frames. Many of our customers- banks, law firms, restaurants, art galleries, museums, corporations and interior designers- want picture frames that enhance the artwork and provide long term durability. In fact, the picture frame is as important as their furnishings, their services and their reputation. All of this represents their brand and their customers experience.
Another important point to make when comparing discounted retail frames to custom framing is that it’s possible to depreciate the value and enjoyment of a photo or artwork because of the quality of the materials used to make the frame and the cheap look of the frame.
The truth is, custom picture frames by Heritage Frame & Picture Co are better than mass retail picture frames.
Before you get concerned, no, Heritage Frame is not going to sell you a picture frame for the cost of a luxury car ( unless you want one created exclusively for you).
What Heritage Frame & Picture Co will do is help you customize a high quality picture frame that compliments your art, photo or painting while enhancing its value and appreciation.
Custom Picture Frames are a worthwhile investment. In fact, this is a good time of the year to give art, photos and posters as gifts. Framing these make the gift even more special and complete.
Heritage Frame has been designing and installing custom frames for almost 140 years. Our custom framing, art restoration and art installation services are backed by a 4th generation company whose experience far exceeds other custom framing companies.
Furthermore, we pick and ship everywhere.
We also guarantee of work and even make house calls.
And we give free custom picture frame, art installation and art restoration quotes and estimates.
Yes, our customer service includes meeting you at your home or office, during the day or after hours and weekends. We are that dedicated to you, our customer.
Our business has survived almost 140 years because we don’t just sell picture frames, we give high quality customer service with a high quality product.
Staging a home is the process of decorating a home in order to present it in the best possible light for potential buyers or renters. Home staging is often used by home builders, real estate agents and private homeowners in order to give the prospect a positive, warm and inspired feeling upon entering the home. Staging has become popular as it is an effective means of motivating sales or rentals. In fact, commercial property brokers and developers are also using staging as well. Staging is a strategy used throughout New York, especially Manhattan real estate and with high end real estate in Westchester County.
If you decide to stage your home when putting it for sale, many ideas come to mind. The key to organize and focusing your ideas is to remember you are staging the property to attract the prospect, not to attract yourself. For this reason, many real estate agents have studied home staging or enlist the services of an interior designer. Haven't you entered a model home and felt the developer had you in mind when building the home. Often times, you feel this way because the home was decorated to embrace your emotions in such a way you feel at home in a strange place.
When staging a home you have many options. In Manhattan and Westchester County, renting furniture is common to create a look that appeals to the potential client. While this is a good idea, a new set of furniture also means the walls sometimes are painted to bring out the colors and style of the furniture. Since most times you wish to appeal to both male and females, the proper custom picture frame on chosen artworks is used to attract the attention of people who enter the home and helps create a theme for the room or even throughout the home.
In most homes, picture frames are mounted in such a manner they are clustered on one or two walls in the home. While standard pictures frames are used as well the primary artwork is usually wearing a custom picture frame to capture the attention. Custom picture frames enhance the picture or art by complimenting its beauty and message.
For the artwork to have the most impact, spread them across various rooms in a creative manner. This helps enhance the beauty of the artwork and makes the home look more spacious. Since you have decided to spread the artworks across various rooms, this means you will need picture frames that blend with the theme of each room. With custom frames and our custom picture frame services, you can custom design a frame that fits into the room perfectly.
Now you know how important picture frames and artwork can be when staging your home, but how do you decide on what custom frame is best for staging the home?
Well here are a few tips that can make a custom picture frame work to your advantage if you wish to stage a home in anywhere including Manhattan, Scarsdale or White Plains, NY;
If you are putting more than one frame on a wall, the pictures in the frame should have a common theme, and the custom frames should have similar designs or color
The frames should not have artworks which center around your personal life
The color of the frames should blend with the walls, upholstery, and flooring in the room
Large rooms which have high ceilings will need large frames
The size of the art in the frame should not be too small that it is difficult to see and also not too large that it overwhelms the room
At Heritage Frame & Picture Co. we are prepared to help you stage your home, office or building for sales or rental. Remember, As Erte said, “Less is More.”
The goal is to leave some space that is quiet, free of images which allows the prospect to breath in between rooms and get ready for the next experience.
If you are ready to have your pictures framed and inspire , we are ready to create custom picture frames that compliment the mood. We have worked with homeowners, interior designers, real estate agents and developers throughout Manhattan, Scarsdale, White Plains and Westchester County, NY.
