Henry Pohlman of Pohlman & Patrick

This lovely row of Renaissance Revival houses between 47th and 48th Street Streets also employs limestone cladding and features elegant carvings, including a dragon-like motif, projecting bays and columns around its entryways. To break up the repetition, Pohlman clad the houses on either end in brownstone, creating a “bookend” effect. Walk along the pretty blocks on 47th or 48th Street toward Fourth Avenue to get to St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, 4917 Fourth Avenue.
