Stockholm Street Historic District

NYC Landmarks50 Alliance

NYC Landmarks50 Alliance

This remarkable block, composed of thirty-six brick row houses, flanks either side of Stockholm Street between Woodward and Onderdonk Avenues. Designed by the local architects Louis Berger & Company and constructed by local developer Joseph Weiss, the houses were built for working-class German-Americans actively developing this area of Ridgewood, Queens at the beginning of the twentieth century. Constructed from 1907-10, these houses feature full-width wooden porches lined with columns. Projecting cornices create smooth rooflines stretching down the street. Bricks used in construction were manufactured on Staten Island by the Kreischer Brick Manufacturing Company, and this street stands out as the only one still paved in brick in Ridgewood. In addition to the thirty-six row houses, two garages, built in 1925 and 1927-28, respectively, are present in the district. This remarkably intact street demonstrates an unusual harmony, created during a period of working-class growth and rapid development in New York City. ©2014
