Brownstone Townhouses

 

New Yorkers lived in Townhouses during the 19th century.

19th Century Single Family Townhouses were made of Brownstone and Limestone.

The luxury apartment building was actually invented in New York in the late 19th century. In 1890 The Dakota was the first luxury apartment building in Manhattan. By 1930, 90% percent of Manhattanites lived in apartments.

 

West 88th Street Townhouse - Park Block

 

The Townhouse Market today is very desirable as single family homes and multi-family income producing rental buildings for investors.
