Bronx Landmarks- Clay Avenue

Clay Avenue

A block of thirty-two turn-of-the-19th-century, semi-detached row houses of brick and rough-cut stone flank Clay Avenue. Most were designed by Warren Dickerson, the architect of some of the finest surviving houses in the borough, in exuberant Neo-Renaissance and eclectic styles. Three apartment buildings, designed by Neville & Bagge and built between 1909 and 1910, are included in the district. Designated April 5, 1994.
