There are many eclectic houses on these two blocks, including number 100, which was built in the Renaissance Revival style by Arthur Harmon, whose firm would later design the Empire State Building. Number 104 was designed in a Classical Revival style, with a grand columned entry porch, pilasters and painted shingles. Like number 100, number 115 (not pictured) also has a claim to fame. It is the one-time home of M. G. Gillette, of Gillette razors. The Shingle style house’s most prominent features are its gambrel roof and bell-shaped tower. Built as a showpiece for the Prospect Park South development, number 131 incorporated elements of Japanese design, taking advantage of the late-19th-century rage for all things “Oriental.” Also notable are numbers 125 (not pictured) and 143. The former was designed in a mix of Renaissance and Classical Revival styles, and the latter evokes an Italian villa with a tower overlooking the neighborhood.
