1950–1955, Herbert C. Crume, et al. La Ronde St. at Chiappero Trail
  • 2600 La Ronde St. (Photograph by Gerald Moorhead )

Just off W. 45th Street is one of the city's most intact enclaves of post–World War II modern houses. Local architect Crume designed many of these houses, which feature flat and low-pitched roofs over brick veneer and glass walls to reflect popular residential design of the era. The houses at 4601 Chiappero Trail (Warren A. Willhoite) and 2600–2607 La Ronde Street comprise a group of single-family houses that are remarkable in their one-story, elongated modernist forms and remain largely unaltered.
