(l. to r.) 99-103, 97, and 87-91 Third Avenue. Nos. 97 and 99-103 Third Avenue are five-story old-law tenements built in 1881 by architect Henry J. Dudley for Samuel Simmons. Nos. 99-103 maintain their original brownstone Neo Grec detail, whereas No. 97 was stripped of its original detail and refaced with white brick in the mid-20th century. Nos. 87-91 Third Avenue is a five-story brick and terra cotta building constructed in 1902. The building was designed in the English neo-Classical style by Myron E. Evans of Ballantyne & Evans Architects. Trow’s Directory Printing and Book Binding Company, which was responsible for printing and binding the New York City directories, was located here.
