Gallery Label: 
This is one of a small group of stained glass windows attributed to Duyckinck that are thought to have been made for the First Reformed Dutch Church built in Albany, NY in 1656 and torn down in 1715. This window was removed from a house on Eighth St. in New York City and found by Mrs. Howard Robbins in a wrecker's yard and used in her Dutch Revival house at Sneden's Landing on the Hudson.
