(l. to r.) 99-103 Third Avenue and 97 Third Avenue. All of these five-story old-law tenements were 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.
