2. Sylvan Terrace in Manhattan
A block in Washington Heights was turned into the street, affectionately termed “whore row,” where Nucky Thompson moves his mistress in the early days of the show. The street connects St. Nicholas Avenue and Jumel Terrace and to the Morris-Jumel Mansion. George Washington and Aaron Burr both famously lived at the Morris-Jumel Mansion for a time, the oldest house in Manhattan. Though the homes on Sylvan Terrace were originally built for the servants of the mansion, the street had the reputation of housing brothels. After being made a historic district in 1970, the crumbling street was renovated at no cost to the owners.
