The Evolution of Home Architecture in NYC Over the Last 215 Years

Real estate site RENTCafè recently threw together this great visual timeline of the evolution of New York City home architecture.

While a lot has been said about the architectural history and design evolution of skyscrapers, it’s NYC houses that we have turned to this time. Single-family residences have always been few and far between in Manhattan. To see Federalist, Colonial, Arts and Crafts, and Tudor Revival style properties, you typically have to leave the center and admire the homes that lie in the outer boroughs. Historic brownstone rowhouses, elegant townhouses, and beautiful mansions are scattered across neighborhoods in all NYC’s boroughs, and feature the widest variety of designs and styles.

Check out the full article to check out the timeline or for more analysis on the history of NYC’s home architecture evolution.
