Designated Landmarks of New York CityBuilt in 1849, the brownstone rowhouse is a rare surviving example of a residential building built in the Gothic Revival style. A style most often used for churches. Notable details include the pointed entranceway with clustered colonettes, the prominent hood molding and a trefoil relief below the projecting box cornice. From 1950 to 1954 this building was the home of Charlie "Bird" Parker, the world-renowned Alto-Saxophonist. Parker was the co-founder of BeBop, the modern jazz style that he and Trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie created during the mid 1940's.
