Washington Heights, 182nd Street Between Audubon and St. Nicholas Avenues

Heading back to St. Nicholas and the subway home. Are these the cutest houses we've seen in a long time? In the first photo you need to know that the sunlit building is actually in back of the darker building, in fact, a block away. It's hard to make yourself see it that way, but you must try; otherwise the house is not cute but clunky.

Though not identical, they are basically the same plan and they both have that asymmetrical little pointy tower in a mirror image of each other. It's as if someone put real thought into the designs. Intriguing given that they are such modest houses.

See map.
