Jumel Mansion and Sylvan Terrace

Sylvan Terrace houses

The Sylvan Terrace's wood houses, build upon the Morris-Jumel mansion's carriage drive in 1882, are a pleasant sight in snow.

Sylvan Terrace rowhouses

The identical houses on Sylvan Terrace are an unusual sight in Manhattan. If you live here, you better remember your house number.

Morris-Jumel Mansion

The Morris-Jumel mansion, in upper Manhattan, is the oldest house in the borough. Built in 1765, it served as Washington's Headquarters as our fledgling army was being driven from New York.

Checker Cab with Brownstones

A row of brownstones on 160th Street between Jumel Terrace and Edgecombe Avenue. I love the old checker cab parked in front. I thought about taking the shot in black and white, but found the contrast between the snow-covered black car and the various shades of brown houses too wonderful to relinquish to black and white.
