Situated on Howard Avenue, across from Notre Dame Academy, with a compelling view of the Lower Bay, New York Harbor, Manhattan, and the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge is the beautiful Casa Belvedere. The 1908 mansion was the home of the Roebling-Stirn family and was designated a New York City Landmark Building in 2001. It is listed on the New York State and National Register of Historic Places and was renamed "Casa Belvedere," meaning a house with a beautiful view, in 2009.

Casa Belvedere serves as a significant architectural and cultural pillar and a destination venue for locals and tourists alike, preservation experts say.
