Description & Building Alterations

Originally built in 1900 as a tenement and designed by Charles B. Meyers, this six-story, seven-bay wide building at 256 East 10th Street continues to be used as apartment dwellings for families.

The present facade features segmental-arched window openings with keystones at the first story, segmental-arched windows with molded surrounds and keystones at second and sixth stories, elaborate molded window lintels at the third through fifth storys, segmental-arched pediments at the fifth story, and quoining at the building corners. The slightly recessed entrance is topped by a stone cartouche and is framed by incised pilasters supporting molded entablature.
