Shingle Style Victorian Architecture and History of Shingle Style Homes

A rarefied style in the 19th century, the Victorian-era Shingle Style is one beloved today. Architects cherish its grand informality, Colonial Revivalists appreciate its simple forms and classical allusions, and neo-Victorians exult in its embrace of Islamic and Japanese forms alongside Georgian. It is, as Vincent Scully put it, “the architecture of the American summer.”

Touring Manhattan’s Lower East Side

Locals have begun calling this part of the borough of Manhattan “LES”—that’s the Lower East Side, a four-square-mile corner nestled between Chinatown and the East Village. (The modern LES Historic District is smaller than the historical boundaries of the neighborhood, which extended north to 14th Street.)
