Treadwell Farm Historic District is one of New York’s oldest historic districts. The LPC designated it in 1967, two years after the Commission’s inception.
The district encompasses East 61st and East 62nd Streets between Second and Third Avenues and was named for the Treadwell family, who owned the undeveloped land in this area beginning in 1815. Most of the buildings are four-story row house constructed between 1868 and 1875.
Today, the district is appreciated for the way it reveals the design aesthetic of the 1910s and 1920s. During those years, most of the buildings were “modernized,” i.e., stoops removed, and projecting detail stripped resulting in simplified elegance
