MacDougal Street between West 3rd and Bleecker Streets

The rest of the east side of MacDougal Street, south of the houses at 130-132 (see map item #3), is a patchwork of colorful late 19th and early 20th century tenements, representing styles including Romanesque, Beaux Arts, and Victorian.  The lively rhythm of the streets, punctuated by fire escapes, active storefronts, and colorful paint jobs on each building, give the area a distinctive look.
