4. West 71st Street Historic District

W 71st Street Historic District-West End Avenue

Only a portion of the block on 71st Street between West End and Riverside Boulevard is part of the historic district. Over the course of three years, six groups of houses were built in the 1890s in the Renaissance Revival style. Each group is a harmonious unit but differentiated from the other groups by material and design. 71st Street also dead ends here, with a view onto Riverside Boulevard. It was once a cul-de-sac with wall, behind which were railroad tracks.
