Council OKs Wallabout Historic District


On Wednesday the City Council voted to approve the Wallabout Historic District, which is comprised of 55 wood and masonry buildings on one block of Vanderbilt Avenue between Myrtle and Park avenues. The homes were constructed during the mid-to-late 19th century and are a mixture of Greek Revival, Gothic Revival and Italianate styles. The LPC voted to approve the district back in July, a move that followed the designation of Wallabout state historic district this March. Patch notes that the homes that make up the Wallabout Historic District “represent one of the largest remaining concentrations of wood-frame houses in the entire city.”
