Peter P. and Rosa M. Huberty House

STATUS Designated Individual Landmark

1019 Bushwick Avenue

ARCHITECT: Ulrich J. Huberty

DATE: 1900

STYLE: Colonial Revival

Brooklyn Bushwick Colonial Revival

Designed in 1900 in the Colonial Revival style, the Peter P. and Rosa M. Huberty House contributed to the development of Bushwick Avenue as one of Brooklyn’s most prestigious residential streets in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and is a striking reminder of the avenue’s historic character. The house was designed by the Huberty’s eldest son, Ulrich J. Huberty, who later, in partnership with Frank J. Helmle and William H. Hudswell, Jr., designed several prominent Brooklyn landmarks before his life and career were cut short by typhoid fever at the age of 33. The house has facades of red brick laid in Flemish bond with burnt headers and contrasting gray-brick quoins, topped by a hipped roof with dormers and a widow’s walk.

“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”
