RENWICK TERRACE NEW YORK

This row of apartments was inspired by London’s rows of townhouses called terraces. These Anglo-Italianate houses were the first to break with the tradition of brownstones with high stoops (a term that comes from the Dutch word for step, popularized by the Dutch who placed their living quarters above the street as protection against floods). The appeal to early tenants was the fact that it was difficult to tell where one unit began and another left off, so that visitors might assume that it was a single, very large mansion.
