Staten island Lodge

The structure, a stone and clapboard 19th century estate sits on 2.8 acres in the Greenridge section of Staten Island on the corner of Richmond and Wainwright Avenues. The lodge an example of old english architecture. The estate was built by Edward Banker some time in the 1850s. He was from an old New Amsterdam family in the ship chandlery business. He was one of the investors in the Erie Canal, an early proponent of railroads, and the developer of the first railroad down Staten Island. In the 1930s, the late Al Deppe one of Staten Island's best known restaurateurs, bought the house. Deppe installed a bar and converted an adjoining enclosed porch into a cocktail lounge. He also built a 200-foot tunnel between the house and his famous restaurant accross the street so that he can safely carry the day's receipts from the restaurant to his home. The lodge made the Richmond Avenue mansion their fifth home on Staten Island after purchasing it in 1960.
