93rd, 94th and 95th Streets Study Area - Central Park West to Amsterdam Avenue

93rd, 94th and 95th Streets Study Area
Central Park West to Amsterdam Avenue

 

These blocks offer a virtual catalogue of architectural styles from Queen Anne to renaissance Revival to Art Deco. The low-scale rowhouses lend a sense of cohesiveness to the mid-blocks, bookended by taller, more modern buildings on the avenues. This ensemble–a palimpsest of overlapping eras and narratives–was created by the West Side Urban Renewal Area (WSURA), a plan conceived in the late 1950s to create new and rehabilitated housing for low, middle, and upper-income residents. The reservation and reuse of once-abandoned and dilapidated houses has been touted as one of the greatest successes of the WSURA. This brilliant legacy of preservation should itself be preserved.
