65 AND 71 IRVING PLACE
Architect: unknown
c.1846

No. 65No. 71

Nos. 65 and 71 Irving Place are two survivors from a row of four late Greek Revival houses that once also included Nos. 67 and 69 Irving Place. The facades of these simple but well-proportioned brick buildings are articulated by crisp rectilinear openings that become smaller on each successive floor. at the rooflines are projecting cornices. At No. 65, the stoop was removed and the first floor and basement converted for commercial use in 1914 by architect Harriston G. Wiseman. No. 71 retains much of its original form, including its stoop. In the early 20th century the house was converted into furnished rooms. Residents included George Axelrod, author of the Broadway hit The Seven Year Itch, and the prominent Socialist, Norman Thomas.
