120 EAST 19TH STREET
Architect: unknown
c.1853

No. 120

With the exception of the loss of the stoop in 1923, this four-story brownstone-fronted Italianate rowhouse remains substantially as built and in representative of the thousands of similar houses that once lined the streets of Gramercy Park and adjoining neighborhoods. Of note are the heavy window enframements and the wooden cornice supported by curving brackets. In about 1913, muckraker Ida Tarbell, famous for her two-volume exposé of the Standard Oil Company, rented a small apartment in this building, where she lived until 1940.
