As America was celebrating last Friday, June 8th, the 145th would-be birthday of its most famous architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, at PropertyShark we turned our attention toward what represents almost two centuries of home architecture in New York City.

A 2012 walk through the city’s most prominent historic districts — Greenwich Village, Brooklyn Heights – still unveils the brownstones and cobbled streets, a distinctive signature of prewar residential architecture. $4,150,000 was the price paid in 2007 for this single-family property at 124 Willow St., Brooklyn, which dates back to 1831. What new property can a similar price buy you in another upscale neighborhood in Brooklyn? This single-family residence at 428 Avenue S, Brooklyn, sold for $4.5M in 2004.

Click on one of the years featured in the slide below to see a property that was built in that year, and further access its report by following the link under “Property Report.”
