New York in New York County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
“These four brick row houses were built in 1860. The original appearance of the row may best be seen at no. 290, which is perfectly preserved. Italianate in style, it retains its high stoop, typical segmented (“eyebrow”) lintels over the entrance doorway, and long parlor floor windows with original iron grille. The windowsills of the upper stories are supported on small stone corbels, and the handsome bracketed roof cornice is also characteristic of the period. The original cast iron stair railings, newels, and areaway railing are still in place.”
From the Greenwich Village Historical District Designation Report (1969).
