Inscription.  
These three Federal town houses of 1821 were built for Asher Martin and John Bennet, tradesmen, who had a shop on nearby Greenwich Street. Two and a half stories in height, these houses are modest versions of the late Federal style retaining their original pedimented dormers, facades in Flemish bond brickwork and simple Federal doorways. In a fine state of preservation, there are fewer than twenty houses in Manhattan of this style and period that remain virtually as constructed.
