When John published his post about his own Dutch house in Brooklyn, he also kindly provided a list of all the Dutch houses in the area that are still standing. Clicking the markers in the map below will take you to the address and information about each house.
John has also provided several web resources:
Old Dutch Houses of Brooklyn, Maud Esther Dillard (Brooklyn, 1945)
Lefferts Historic House (Prospect Park Website)
Lott House Restoration and Information
In my own travels on the web for this project, I noticed that Christopher Gray wrote this article for the New York Times about John and his house:

Shelley Bernstein is the former Vice Director of Digital Engagement & Technology at the Brooklyn Museum where she spearheaded digital projects with public participation at their center. In the most recent example—ASK Brooklyn Museum—visitors ask questions using their mobile devices and experts answer in real time. She organized three award-winning projects—Click! A Crowd-Curated Exhibition, Split Second: Indian Paintings, GO: a community-curated open studio project—which enabled the public to participate in the exhibition process.
Shelley was named one of the 40 Under 40 in Crain's New York Business and her work on the Museum's digital strategy has been featured in the New York Times.
In 2016, Shelley joined the staff at the Barnes Foundation as the Deputy Director of Digital Initiatives and Chief Experience Officer.
