Designated June 24, 2003

The district’s forty-two buildings including row houses, apartment houses, warehouses, factories and offices represent the various shifts in the neighborhood over a century. Federal brick row houses survive from the first period of development in the early 19th century.

As immigration increased the neighborhood’s population later in the century, speculative multiple-family dwellings in Italianate and Neo-Grec styles were constructed. By the 1880s, larger store-and-loft buildings and factories in Renaissance and Romanesque Revivals were constructed as the area took on a more commercial and industrial character. More residential development in the Colonial and Classical Revival styles went up at the turn of the century.

“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”
