70 Perry was built in 1867 by Walter Jones, who also lived in the home at the time. The French Second Empire style boasts excellent proportions and a mansard roof that provides a unique look in comparison to the rest of the block. Landmarked in the Historic District, this property is a jewel flanked between the charm of Bleecker Street and West 4th Street. This is truly a restored step back into history that cannot be passed up.
