Do you know where the term #carriagehouses came from?
They were built in the late 18th century to store horses 🐴 and carriages, the only real means of transportation on the city’s craggy #nyctownhouse #cobblestone streets. As cars 🚙 started to become more popular, carriage house owners would rent out rooms to immigrant families who were arriving in droves or use the extra space for workshops and studios. Nowadays these homes represent some of New York’s most sought-after real estate, in large part because they combine the quaintness and charm of the old city with the contemporary luxuries of the new. The current owners of this #gramercypark gem kept the gabled carriage house façade while transforming the rest with glass and steel windows that reach from top to bottom and adding a rooftop #terrace that includes a small #garden. Swoon. 📸 by @donnadotanphoto #nychistory #nyctownhouse #nycrealtor #townhouseexpertnyc #halsteaduws #luxuryrealestate #nycreagent #curtisgoldstein #movetowhatmovesyou 🏠

Just listed...48 and 48 1/2 South Battery! Known as the James MacBeth House, c. 1846, this South of Broad stunner also has a carriage house in back, c. 1790, with 2300 square feet, two bedrooms, 2.5 baths, four fireplaces and an updated kitchen. And that's just a teaser...wait 'til you see the main house! Get in touch with @marylou_charleston to make it happen.

One of my favorite places to walk in the city: #washingtonmews. This #urbangem was originally used as a Mews (row of stables) to house the horses from surrounding homes. Fast forward to today, the #carriagehouses are some of the most #exclusive private residences. 👀 for @chlobearcarter .

Inspired by a trip to Charleston in all it’s “old world” charm and vivid historical color consisting of architecture, waterfronts, galleries, museums, carriage tours, hotels, restaurants, coffee cafes, high-end shopping, military forefronts, and the sweltering heat. Fascinating historical plaques dating back to the early 1600’s..... all to preserve and protect the city’s aged beauty from modern trends and fleeting fashions! One can not help but to daydream while walking down the cobblestone roads of past generations of old wealthy blue blood southern society..... and the extreme heat they must have endured in all their finery!!! #travelandleisure #historicalcharleston #fascinatingarchitecture #expensiveantiques #charmingcities #cobblestoneroads #frenchmarkets #vividcolorpalettes #famousstreets #eastbaystreet #magnificentmansions #gaslanterns #carriagehouses #protectedhistoricallandmarks #thicksummerheat #waterfrontproperties

Today we see #TimesSquare as what it now is: one of the most brightly lit places in the world, actually visible from #outerspace. A mecca for #theatre goers, tourists, and people who like paying way too much for mediocre #food and #merchandise. *
But once upon a time, it was called #LongacreSquare. Pre and post name change, it was mostly known as a hub for #transportation needs. Everything from #blacksmiths to #stables to #carriagehouses and repairs, and eventually even #cardealerships (you can see the #GarfordCar dealership in the second picture, and #PackardCars in the fourth), even for some time after the #theaters finally made their way up past #42ndstreet. These #vintagephotographs and #vintagedrawing were taken/drawn between 1904-1908. *
My favorite bit of #irony? It was infamous for being UNlit at night, taking its sweet time getting electric lights, and people were warned to stay away unless they wanted trouble (still the case there, I suppose?) *
And that tall building to the right of the #TimesBuilding? That's the famous #AstorHotel, open from 1904-1967 (the #WaldorfAstoria opened right smack in the middle of that, in 1931) and the office building now on its former site pays tribute with its name: #OneAstorPlaza *
Thanks to @barbarajchin for the 2018 photos! #Manahattan #manhattanhistory #nyc #nychistory #newyorkcity #vintagenyc
