This block showcases some of the rowhouse architecture that defines Sunset Park. On the north side are 26 houses, unusual for their flat-fronted façades, all designed and built by the same person in the same year. Across the street are two sets of 13 houses by two different architects, but all of them feature projecting bays, which creates an interesting contrast with the north side’s flat wall.
