LEXINGTON
144 East 22nd Street
Architect: Sass & Smallheiser
1901

Lexington

Prior to the passage of the 1901 Tenement House Act, the firm of Sass & Smallheiser was responsible for the design of a significant number of old law tenements, many located on the Lower East Side. The six-story apartment house at 144 East 22nd Street, planned almost immediately after the 1901 law went into effect, is a very early example of a new law apartment house. The Beaux-Arts brick building with rusticated limestone base and extensive terra-cotta trim was planned to house 29 middle-class families, four on the first floor and five on each of the upper floors.
