This is a fair neighborhood, although sparsely settled. It is capable of further improvement, to which this row of houses will materially contribute. Henry Lansdell is the owner, and C. B.

Henry Lansdell is expected to resume work next week on his row of houses on 7th avenue between Carroll street and Garfield place. They are twelve in all and will be three-story and basement brown stone, V shape. Before commencing these houses he built seven on St. Johns place near 8th avenue, not being able to dispose of them at that time, he now, it is said, has an opportunity of doing so; if successful, we hope to again see him at work on the now partly finished row. The interiors will be fitted up in ash and walnut and rooms arranged similar to the row built last fall, including a buffet situated off the dining room. The location is excellent, situated on the line of cars running direct to the Bridge and Fulton ferry. Their dimensions are 19x48, and valued at $14,000. Jesse Brown, mason.
