9. Sniffen Court, Murray Hill
This small private alley–now a historic district–is located in Murray Hill and is a private street. Starting in 1863 and ending one year later in 1864, John Sniffen built 10 carriage houses lining the alley, that have now been coverted into apartments. It has an old world feel with two white pegasus’ gracing the back wall.
There are also numerous small historic districts around the city that are less than one block, many of which have an akin old world feel!
