122 East 92nd Street House

STATUS Designated Individual Landmark

122 East 92nd Street


DATE: 1859

STYLE: Vernacular, Wood Frame

Carnegie Hill Manhattan Vernacular Wood Frame

Entering through a gate in the railing and crossing the yard, one arrives at the low stoop which leads to a wide porch with attractive openwork columns. On the right hand end of the porch are the handsome paneled entrance doors, and on the left, two French doors with segmental arched heads surmounted by cornices. This same treatment is repeated at the two upper floors above the porch. The clapboard front wall is crowned by a cornice supported on paired brackets with panels in between.

Set back above it, a penthouse addition of 1927 with large windows, provides a fourth floor. At the left, and also set back, a much earlier two story addition contains a service entrance. The architecture of this house is that of the local vernacular with the wood segmental arched window heads reflecting the contemporary design of those executed in masonry.

“I don’t know what the City would be without HDC. [They] testified before LPC time after time and helped us focus on the right issues. We would not be an historic district without HDC! ”

“Use HDC as a resource because they know what they are doing and can offer advice on how to go about creating a district from every front: architectural, political, LPC, and the media. I had floundered prior to my involvement with this invaluable organization.”

“HDC provided guidance and shared information during that process—we knew which Council members were going one way or another and we changed a few minds. I don’t think NoHo would have had as cohesive a district had it not been for HDC’s aid.”

“I remember Richard saying at a meeting, we have someone here from HDC, Nadezhda Williams, Director of Preservation and Research, to help us. She said to us, ‘You are not the only ones going through this.’ HDC included us in an enormous community”
