Beaux-Arts Tenement at Bleecker & MacDougal Streets

This striking tenement at 185 Bleecker Street was built in 1904 and is typical of structures of its era in the South Village.  Heavy with monumental detailing, the structure sits weightily on the important corner of Bleecker and MacDougal Streets.  The brightly painted ground floor reflects the trend toward colorful architectural accentuation in the neighborhood, while the upper floors, with heavy quoins, lintels, and arches, in alternating brick and masonry, creates an eye-catching rhythm at least as strong as the contrasting paint job below.
