Inscription.  
Sullivan Street, named after Revolutionary War general John Sullivan, has these two Federal-style town houses which were built on what was once part of the Bayard farm, originally owned in the 17th Century by Peter Bayard, brother-in-law of Dutch governor Peter Stuyvesant. The houses, built in 1819, are characterized by their symmetry and decoration, and are notable for their original Federal doorways, Flemish bond brickwork, six-over-six pane windows, and wrought-iron stoop railing.
