Beekman, a small, exclusive enclave centered on Beekman Place, spans just a few blocks along the East River as part of the Turtle Bay neighborhood. It was named after the Beekman family, descendants of Wilhelmus Beekman, an influential early Dutch settler who prospered in New Amsterdam and became mayor of the city. The British General William Howe seized Mount Pleasant, the family mansion, for his headquarters in 1776. (According to tradition, Nathan Hale was tried and confined there before he was hanged as a spy.) The mansion gave way to factories and slaughterhouses until redevelopment began in the early 20th century. Today, the area is an affluent residential enclave of prewar townhouses and luxury condominium towers, including One Beekman Place, a 1929 co-op, and River House, a 1930s Art Deco tower.
