Another Murray Hill landmark building


Like the house at 153 East 38th Street, Sniffen Court provides a delightful break in its block's streetscape.  I like that two street trees frame the entrance.  The Court is composed of 10 carriage houses which were completed in the 1860s.  The stables were converted to residences in the 1920s.
