109 EAST 19TH STREET
Architects: Herts & Tallant
1896

No. 109

This large four-story Anglo-italianate brownstone-fronted rowhouse was one of several in the neighborhood erected by banker Elihu Townsend. The property was sold to James Huslop, a prominent physician, who lived here until 1904. The building continued to house doctors after Hyslop sold the property. In 1908, a Dr. DeFaulk commissioned a one-story rear addition from Herts & Tallant, an architectural firm with offices at 113 East 19th Street, and in 1932 Dr. David Schulman had the upper floors converted into six apartments. In 1985 Nicholas Pileggi wrote the novel Wise Guy - Life in a Mafia Family while living in this building; in the early 1990s, Pileggi and Martin Scorsese wrote the screenplay here for the movie adaptation, retitled Goodfellas. The house retains its original round-arched ground-floor openings (part of an arcade of arched windows running along the north side of this street) and original entrance doors, iron railings, parlor-floor casement windows, and deep cornice supported by paired brackets.
