MISS E.L. BREESE CARRIAGE HOUSE
150 East 22nd Street
Architect: Sidney V. Stratton
1901

Miss E.L. Breese Carriage House

Several stable and carriage-house structures once stood on this block of 22nd Street, but only this small New-flemish example survives. Built for Miss E.L. Breese by the socially well-connected architect Sidney V. Stratton, the building is a fine example of the private carriage houses that were erected in the late 19th century by some of New York's wealthiest citizens. This is the most substantial carriage house standing in the Gramercy Park neighborhood. The building is constructed of gold Roman brick with a white limestone base and trim and contains interesting overscaled voussoirs above the vehicular entrance, an unusual recessed blind arch encompassing the three second-floor windows, and a simple stepped pediment. By the 1920s, the building had been converted for use as a bakery; it is now a private residence.
