Manhattan Landmarks- Henderson Place

 Henderson Place

Twenty-four of the original thirty-two Queen Anne houses designed by Lamb & Rich for John C. Henderson make up this district. In Henderson’s words, the two-story, brick and rough stone homes were built in this cul-de-sac for “persons of moderate means.” Completed in 1882, the structures are set back from the street with front yards and basement areaways separated from the sidewalk by low stonewalls. Designated February 11, 1969.
