Striver’s Row is a national and New York City landmark district in Harlem located on both sides of West 138th and West 139th Streets between Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard and Frederick Douglass Boulevard. These two streets have several architects associated with them. They are James Brown Lloyd, Bruce Price, and Stanford White all of whom designed series of row houses in different architectural styles with private alleyways in the 1890s. In the nineteenth century, Harlem was a laboratory for developers to test out urban design. Also, it was its own unique urban centre far away from New York City centred around 14th Street in the period. Pictured here are the yellow brick and white limestone with terra cotta trim buildings in the Colonial Revival style by Bruce Price and Clarence S. Luce. #harlem #harlemstyle #harlemarchitecture #harlemrennaissance #historicharlem #historicnewyork #colonialrevival #gildedage #architecture #architecturegram #design #designer #interiordesigner #historic #historiclandmark #landmark #landmarks #preservation #historicpreservation #newyork #nyc #uptown #photoblog #architectureblog #designblog #ilovenewyork #travel #urbanexplorer #newyorker #dailyphoto
