64 Third Avenue | Block : 556-1 | Lot #20
Description & Building Alterations
Although a house existed on this lot as far back as 1828, this four-story row house was likely built at the same time as the adjacent building at 122 East 11th Street (the side of the building with green painted fire safety staircases), located at the rear of this lot. The two houses match in appearance, and between the 1837 and 1839 tax assessment records, the lot rises from $4,000 to $6,500 in value. The tax assessment record for 1838 is missing, so the exact owner and date of construction is uncertain. No. 64 Third Avenue, like no. 122 East 11th Street, was probably built as a 3-story building and had its top floor added later in the 19th century.
