History and Analysis

1062-1084 Hancock Street was a row of twelve 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. Number 1082 on lot 29 has been demolished. All the remaining structures 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 1888 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
