History and Analysis

This is one of Bushwick’s single-family mansion survivors along the Avenue. It is likely that Engelhardt was the architect. The house is a two and a half story, raised basement structure and features high architectural integrity such as original masonry, incised stone lintels, a wrought iron fence/gate, a finial at the crest of the roof, projecting bay window, covered front porch and a green slate roof. The Block and Lot folder for this structure is unfortunately missing from the Brooklyn Department of Buildings, and further research on this house has not proved fruitful. The residence is currently fit for three families and has been occupied by artists and musicians since 2007.
