Rowhouses at 130, 132 MacDougal Street


This picturesque pair of houses (left picture) was built in 1852, and in many ways typifies the rowhouse architecture of Lower Manhattan of this era.  Of special note is the delicate wrought-iron grill surrounding the doorway and the thick greenery growing around it (right picture).  Until just a few years ago, the greenery actually covered most of the facades of both buildings (which have also recently been cleaned and repainted), giving them a furtive and anachronistic feel on this otherwise loud and boisterous block.
