Hoppin & Koen, 1922

Built by Thomas T. Hopper, Co. and designed by Hoppin & Koen, architects of the former New York City Police Headquarters Building in Little Italy, these 12 houses were advertised as “New Garden Houses—with Garages” and were meant to evoke English country cottages with white stucco and green tiled roofs. All 12 are extant today, but with some alterations to their original appearances, especially the removal of their original stucco.
