935-947 Prospect Place, 907-933 Prospect Place

A. White Pierce, 1920-22
Matthew W. Del Gaudio, 1933-36

This row of six Arts and Crafts style stucco houses was built in the early 1920s, just as the automobile was gaining traction, as evidenced by the three narrow archways that lead to attached garages in the rear. Architect A. White Pierce was known for his work on suburban residential architecture, including many houses in Prospect Park South and Ditmas Park. True to his specialty, these six lovely houses were designed in a human-scale, with charming touches like steeply pitched gables, dormers, arched openings, and a sloped slate roof that unifies the row. Next door, a much different kind of housing is found at 907-933 Prospect Place, a grand Art Deco style apartment building adorned with colorful, geometrick brickwork.

935-947 Prospect Place and 907-933 Prospect Place are located in the State and National Register of Historic Places Crown Heights North Historic District.
