Description & Building Alterations

Likely built as the first of a row of brownstone rowhouses that continued down the block to 220 East 13th Street, 206 East 13th Street is one of only four that survive and is the most intact of those four. Although the window lintels have been simplified, the attractive Italianate facade, with high parlor floor windows, raised-stoop and cornice all remain. The facade has been stuccoed and pained, but the proportions and original feeling are retained. It was likely constructed as a single family home and converted to apartments as the neighborhood changed.
