DESIGNATION REPORT CLIP:

From the Greenwich Village Historic District Designation Report, published by the LPC in 1969:

#58 Originally Greek Revival in style, this three-story house of the
mid-Eighteen-forties later acquired a fourth story and an imposing,
bracketed Italianate cornice. The house retains its stoop and long
parlor floor windows. An unusual central escutcheon embellishes the
sheetmetal cornices over the windows of the fourth floor; the bold
sheetmetal window cornices of the lower stories are likewise later
additions. The house was originally erected for John Van Nest,
associated with the long-established family saddlery business at 114
Pearl Street.
