Strycker's Bay Is On The Map

We are always asked...Strycker's Bay? Where is that? Well here is a map and there are a few more to come. We, too are very interested in the history of the name Strycker's Bay and the West Side in general...as we find more information we will post it here.

Here is what we know about the origin of the name Strycker's Bay ...


The name Strycker’s Bay is derived from the early history of the area. Jacob Strycker was the first of the early Dutch settlers in this section, building a large house on the banks of the Hudson River near what is now West 96th Street. By association with his estate, the area between West 81st and West 99th Streets, Central Park West and the river became known as Strycker’s Bay.
