For roughly 40 years, William M. Mullen, a lawyer who practiced in Staten Island and Manhattan, resided at number 73 and owned numbers 71 and 75 as rental properties. Mullen commissioned his own house, which, at three stories over a raised basement, is taller than its neighbors and features a full-height projecting bay and a gabled roof. He purchased the two rental properties in 1891. Both were built by the Post brothers and feature the brothers’ signature mansard roof, as well as dormers, projecting bay windows and columned entry porches.
