14 (right, with tower) and 16 (left) St. Nicholas Place, near West 150th Street in the Hamilton Heights area of Harlem, New York.

Were built in 1883-84 as residences, and was designed by William Grinnell in the Queen Anne style.

At a time when most of the homes in the area were freestanding, these two detached frame houses were unusual.

They are covered in wood shingles, and the tower on #14 is topped by an onion dome.

The two houses are part of New York City’s Hamilton Heights/Sugar Hill Northeast Historic District.
