A Self-Guided Walking Tour of Jersey City's Van Vorst Park Historic District
A Walking Tour of Architectural Styles
3. 62 Wayne Street

By Herbert J. Githens

DIRECTION: Having contrasted a Greek Revival with an Eastlakean building, we move on to more examples of the earlier style. Walk east on Wayne Street across Barrow Street. On the left (north) side is 62 Wayne Street.

This small two-story wood-frame house again reflects the carpenter's adaptation of Greek Revival ideas. There are no columns here, but the heavy cornice with dentil blocks is of Greek Revival style. Notice how the fascia board is interrupted by the second-floor windows, and how the roof slopes front and back up to an intermediate ridge. The relationship of window sizes is similar to that in the Barrow Mansion, as is the treatment around the doorway. A simple molded drip cap over the first-floor windows highlights the opening.
