View of Washington Square North

The row houses on Washington Square North have been home to three mayors of New York City, two presidents of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, artists Rockwell Kent and Edward Hopper, and writers John Dos Passos, e.e. cummings, and Edmund Wilson. The unified group of thirteen houses were built in the Greek revival style more than 150 years ago and looks very much as it did in the days of Andrew Jackson. NYU has leased “The Row” since 1949.
