Wedged between two 14-story, 1920s apartment buildings is this five-story rowhouse, which, with its gable roof, pedimented dormer and chimney, appears quaint in comparison. Originally one of a group of rowhouses that wrapped around East 79th Street, this brick and brownstone house’s front stoop was removed in 1929 and its entrance was converted into a round-arch window with columns and a fanlight.
