History and Analysis

1047-1065 Hancock Street is a row of ten two-and-a-half-story rowhouses located between Bushwick Avenue and Evergreen Avenue, all three bays wide with stoops on the right side of the front facade. All are now covered in vinyl or asphalt siding with most of the front facade ornament removed, so it is difficult to determine their original architectural style, which was possibly Neo-Grec. Each rowhouse is a brick filled frame with a tin roof, constructed for $2,800 in 1889 as a speculative development venture by Cozine & Gascoine who resided at 1223 and 1225 Bushwick Avenue. These rowhouses were built as part of a larger speculative development scheme by the firm Cozine & Gascoine who were responsible for the construction of around 1,000 structures in the area.
