Description & Building Alterations

This building is a five-story “pre-law” tenement likely built in 1860.  It has the same Italianate cornice as many of the neighboring buildings.  The original storefront and lintels are gone and a series of small windows have been installed in the facade between the center and right window bays.  This likely indicates the placement of an added bathroom.
