4. The Brick Rowhouse, 2105 Albemarle Terrace

Albemarle Terrace

The middle-class rowhouses of Albemarle Terrace were designed in the early 20th century by architects Slee & Bryson. Inspired by the 1876 Centennial Celebration in Philadelphia, the pair designed the rowhouses in a Colonial Revival style reminiscent of early American homes. Albemarle Terrace is lined with twelve two to three-story homes with their own small, individual gardens. 2105 Albemarle Terrace is the center house in a row of three. It features a brick round-arched entrance, pitched slate roof, and a leaded glass fanlight, quintessential elements of the development. In 1978, Albemarle and Kenmore Terraces were designated as a New York City historic district.
