The Life of a Brownstone

To number the lives in the life of a building falls to the census-takers and the statisticians, and yet no one can deny that lovely weight which is felt upon entering a space laden with the tangle of many years of human affairs. Or, perhaps, this sensation is best recognized in its absence, which is conspicuous in new airports, lobbies which close at 5 pm, most of the residences of suburbia, and homogeneous large hotels. The feeling is one of the unique joys of urban life and it is one of the few which are in fact augmented by the ceaseless change of the city fabric, rather than swept away by it.

In New York City, the image par excellence of such a storied building is no doubt the brownstone, a fact confirmed by even the most cursory knowledge of American cinema. The Upper East Side boasts an Historic District of such architectural relics, and it is here that you will find 1871 House. Considering its proximity to Midtown and the unparalleled bustle emanating from the economic heart of the Western world, you will find 1871 House's hideaway atmosphere all the more surprising and welcoming.

The apartments which comprise the Townhouse are available for extended stays, and offer a wonderful temporary furnished housing alternative, with a location that matches or surpasses any in all New York. The Metropolitan Museum of Art makes for a comfortable walk, as does the Museum of Modern Art. Even closer, three blocks to the west the visitor finds Central Park, the first great urban park built on this continent and a daily people-watching exhibition without equal.
