History and Analysis

These speculative row houses were part of a row that spanned the north side of Halsey Street (once known as Margaretta Street) between Broadway and Bushwick Avenue. This row was part of a mass development project that also encompassed both the North and South Sides of Weirfield Street between Broadway and Bushwick Avenue. The houses were designed in a simplified Neo-Grec style and were described as a wood frame, brick filled houses. The houses cost $2700 each.
