1601 Avenue T

Here’s a rare postcard view (actually, it’s probably unique) of the house at 1601 Avenue T, at the northeast corner of East 16th Street, next to a 2015 shot of the house by Lisanne Anderson. It was built early in the twentieth century as part of the real estate development called Homecrest. The house retains its basic shape despite the changes to its skin over the last hundred years. Its immediate neighbor at 1607 Avenue T has fared less well.
