☞ BESPOKE: The Griffins of Sugar Hill

A row of townhouses on West 148th Street and St. Nicholas Avenue have distinct cast iron stoops but we also noticed some rare etchings above the doorways.  Out of the five matching portals, one will notice that half of them still have intricate griffins engraved above the entrances.  It is unclear if the other buildings had this detail at one point in time but one would assume that the original architect probably designed all of the homes to match.
