Brooklyn Clinton Hill Colonial Revival Pratt

The Pratt Institute Faculty Rowhouses are a cluster of 27 dwellings located at 220- 234 Willoughby Avenue, 171-185 Steuben Street, and 172-186 Emerson Place. Built in 1907, they were designed in a Colonial Revival style by architect Hobart A. Walker. The houses, situated at the northeast corner of the Pratt Institute campus, were commissioned by the institute to meet its expanding needs. Each row of two-and-one-half-story red brick houses has two alternating house types, one with a peaked stuccoed gable, the other with a stepped gable. Paired stoops lined by railings lead to entrances with paneled double doors.

“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”
