Inscription.  This dignified row of six brick houses was erected in 1851 by Smith Woodruff, mason, a member of a well-known family of builders. The original appearance of this row of three-story Italianate town houses, now greatly altered, is perhaps best seen at No. 42. Nos. 44 & 46 were altered very extensively in 1929 to house Greenwich House Music School. This row of houses serves as a reminder of the sober design and good workmanship of many of the forgotten builders of the mid-Nineteenth Century. These new dwellings of 1851 replaced a row of shops, factories, and stables formerly owned by Timothy Whittemore, President of the Greenwich Insurance Company, whose family owned a great deal of property in the Village.
