Bronx Landmarks-Morris Avenue

Morris Avenue

A series of two-family row houses and tenements designed by John Hauser were built in five building campaigns between 1906 and 1910. Most have three-story, curved bow façades that tie them together, while varying shades and patterns of brickwork as well as different wrought-iron areaway railings lend interesting diversity. Designated July 15, 1986.
