4 - East Stair Hall

This room became the main entrance to the Manor when the final wing was added to the building in the mid-18th century. The wear on the stairs came from heavy use when the building was Yonkers City Hall.

A - Balustrade

As can be seen in the image above, the East Stair Hall has a more elaborate staircase than that in the South Stair Hall. Its turned and carved mahogany balusters (on the left) were "in fashion" when this room was added in the mid-1700s, while the South staircase has more humble pine balusters (on the right) from an earlier period.
