A Self-Guided Walking Tour of Jersey City's Van Vorst Park Historic District
A Walking Tour of Architectural Styles
24. 475 Jersey Avenue

By Herbert J. Githens

DIRECTION: Continue north on Jersey Avenue, crossing Montgomery Street, and walk on the side of the street opposite the Library/Museum.

This house is attributed to Edward Simon, a prominent late-nineteenth-century architect from Jersey City. Brick details characteristic of Simon's architecture are seen here in the toothed (turned on corner) brick recessed in belt courses and recessed openings in the walls. The brownstone detail is achieved with incised lines cut into abstracted floral patterns. The massing is characteristically Queen Anne. A stained-glass transom and fine double doors contribute to a very light treatment of the entry.
