There is a little brick house at 401A Convent Avenue and 147th Street which appears to be one of the most compact residences to be found uptown. The petite red brick, semi-detached building is in the historic district and therefore an official landmark but not much material can be found on its origins. Most of the other homes in the area are grand limestone townhouses and this particular property appears to be a fraction of the size of its towering neighbors. Does anyone have any more details on the history of this curious building?
