Original caption: 11/1/1970-New York, NY: Half as big as the surrounding structures, this tiny house in Manhattan's Greenwich Village (at Grove and Beford Streets) has out lasted many of its larger neighbors. It dates back to Civil War days, when it served as headquarters for slaves ecaping via the "UNdergound Railway." Bernard Gutman, a New York businessman (who has a pur motive and profit motive), has founded the non profit Historic Site Coordinating Committee to act as clearing house for persons and groups interested in preserving the country's architectural heritage.
