Park Place is comprised of 13 modest Romanesque style rowhouses constructed circa 1894 with richly ornamented façades and Queen Anne style details. The houses are made of brick, sandstone and terra cotta and were designed as a group with alternating façade layouts and flat, round- and triangle-gabled roofs, and is outstanding for its exuberant and picturesque details juxtaposed with their modest scale. This is only part of a larger, proposed Crow Hill Historic District. In HDC’s October 26, 2010 statement on the proposal, we said: “The proposal…is definitely meritorious as handsome examples of late-19th century speculative residential development in New York City. The same could also be said of other sections of Crow Hill so we urge the Landmarks Commission to consider this small designation as an amuse bouche before embarking on a broader historic district in this worthy neighborhood.“ We continue to hope that the LPC revisits this worthy area soon.
