William and Rosamond Clark House
Location: 51 Market Street
Back to the architecture of the rich. This is the late Federal style. At 83-85 Sullivan Street, completed in 1819, the toplight is rectangular and modest; six years later, at 51 Market Street, we have a rainbow of egg-and-dart, rosette, glass and lead. (The evolution here is muddied by the fact our 1820 entry has similar detailing.) And not that you can see it in this photo, but the lintels (the things on top of windows) are not the featureless slabs we’ve witnessed but have a little detailing to them. So just a touch more ornate than we’ve seen before.
