Built circa 1856 by James Renwick Jr., the famed architect behind St. Patrick's Cathedral and Grace Church, 24 West 10th Street is part of “Renwick Row,” or “English Terrace Row.” Wide, elegant, shrouded by trees and swathed in amber light, this stately row stands over 165 years later and makes this stretch of 10th Street one of the most spectacular in the city.
In 1906, previous owner Cornelius Berrien Mitchell founded the Washington Square Association at 24 West 10th Street, “to maintain and improve the character and culture of the Washington Square neighborhood.” The Washington Square Association remains among the oldest civic organizations in the city.
