Francis Kimball

These six Queen Anne rowhouses arguably make up the most beautiful such row in the Mount Morris Park area. The stoops and first stories are clad in rough-cut and carved brownstone, while the upper stories are a textured mix of red brick and highly ornate red terra cotta. Architect Francis Kimball was known for his highly detailed use of terra cotta, and these buildings attest to his talents. Kimball also designed several skyscrapers in Lower Manhattan, including the landmarked Empire Building located at Rector Street and Broadway and the Corbin Building on John Street and Broadway. The West 122nd Street rowhouses are not in the existing historic district.
