Description & Building Alterations

The twin New-Law tenements at Numbers 208 and 212 East 13th Street were constructed simultaneously in 1901 by architect Charles Rentz who was also co-owner of the two buildings with D. Brubacher, a wine merchant. The brick building with brownstone details was designed in the Neo-Classical style with full window enframements and angular lintels and keystones. The sixth floor windows are arched with the enframements and keystones following that shape. The buildings would have had a classically-inspired cornice originally. The ground floor of 212 has been altered, but would have looked like that of 208.
