168, 170, 172, 174, 176, 178, 180 BEACH 24TH STREET

This group of bungalows is elevated along the east side of Beach 24th Street, forming a particularly attractive streetscape. Numbers 172, 178 and 180 have a particularly high level of architectural integrity and stand out in the row for their distinctive arched porches. Numbers 172 and 180 have many similarities, including stone diamond-shaped medallions on their front elevations, concrete porches, hip roof dormers with six-pane casement windows, and original wood cornices on the dormers and roofline. Number 180 has a fabric awning and an original holder. Number 178 is slightly different from the other two with its louvered dormer window and its use of stucco on the exterior. These three houses and their other elevated neighbors contribute greatly to the charm of this area of extant beach bungalows.
