301-307 West 78th Street, Frederick B. White [1884-6]

Built on land owned by the Astors, these modestly-scaled red brick row houses reflect the humble, early days of the Upper West Side, before recovery from the early 1880s depression enabled the construction of more elaborate dwellings. The elegant but modest facades of these idiosyncratic Dutch Revival style row houses reflects their status as slightly second-rate middle-class housing.
