DATE: 1886-87

Carnegie Hill Manhattan Queen Anne Rhinelander

These are six picturesque houses remaining from an original group of ten. Designed by the notable architectural finn of Hubert, Pirsson & Co. in the Queen Anne style, the row was built for William Rhinelander in 1886-87. The land upon which the houses stand originally bordered the Harlem Commons and was acquired by the Rhinelander family in 1812. The land and houses remained in their possession well into the 20th century. From the mid to the late 1880s, the side streets in this section of Manhattan became lined with first class rowhouses for the middle class, of which Nos. 146-156 are fine examples.

“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”
