Originally called The King Model Houses and now the St. Nicholas Historic District, these four block fronts, with 146 row houses and three apartment buildings, were the brainchild of developer David H. King, Jr., who described it as a neighborhood independent of surrounding influences. All of the homes were intended for white middle-class families and were not open to blacks until the 1920s, when the area became known as Striver’s Row, representing the aspirations of such residents as songwriter Eubie Blake, bandleader Fletcher Henderson, and musician W. C. Handy.
