83 and 85 Sullivan Street Houses

Built in 1819, this pair of houses still have their original Federal style doorways with  leaded transoms , which are among the earliest surviving in the city.  The low stoops with wrought-iron railings, Flemish brickwork, and multi-paned wooden sash windows are also original.  The houses were originally 2 stories tall, but full third floors were added when the former single-family homes became multiple dwellings.  In 1900, No. 85 housed five families.
