17 Grove Street, New York City

Buried under the concrete buildings in New York City’s West Village neighborhood, 17 Grove Street’s wooden frame has stood almost entirely unchanged since the 1870s. Originally built as a home in 1822 by sash maker William Hyde, 17 Grove has gone through many internal changes in the past two centuries, however in its current (Summer 2017) iteration, it has been restored to a private residence.
