Permits Filed: 563 West 170th Street, Washington Heights
Back in the 1930s, two 19th century wood frame homes stood at 563 and 565 West 170th Street, between St Nicholas and Audobon Avenues in Washington Heights. But by the late 1970s, the two houses had been torn down and replaced by a garage and an unremarkable two-story brick building. Now a new residential building may grow at no. 563, which is mostly vacant except for the dilapidated, single-story garage.
