Many of the houses were built between 1801 and the 1830s. In the late 19th century Vinegar Hill was a dense residential and industrial neighborhood with a large Irish population and became known as “Irishtown”. The neighborhood has gone through many changes the area expanded in 1903 after the building of the Manhattan Bridge, houses were razed in the 1920s and 1930s for industrial facilities, parking lots and warehouses, a pattern which continued after World War II.
