Day 849

Claremont Terrace

April 27th, 2014

Along this little road once stood four large houses, built in the 1850s by Samuel Lord (of Lord & Taylor) for his four daughters. One of the houses managed to survive, albeit in a dilapidated state, until 2006, when it was leveled to make way for the still-unfinished brick apartment building above, second from right. You can see bird's-eye views before and after the house was replaced by the apartment building here and here, respectively.
