The East Mott Haven Historic District is one of the oldest rowhouse developments in The Bronx, where the rowhouse typology is rare in comparison to other parts of the city. The houses were designed by two architects who, in some cases, collaborated. The houses on the north side of East 140th Street form a whimsical row in a mix of styles, including Dutch/Flemish pediments.
