c. 1790?. 1869, rebuilt or remodeled, James Graham. 605–607 Prince St.

This ornate row of buildings may have at their core an earlier structure. William B. Klipstein purchased them in 1853 and 1858 and hired Graham to rebuild them. Graham installed cast iron lintels, window hoods, and cornices on top of the brick facade.
