149 West 10th Street was built in 1833 in Greek Revival style. This townhouse was part of a row of eleven homes constructed by New York State Senator and NYU co-founder Myndert Van Schaick, who is noted for being the driving force behind the construction of the Croton Aqueduct, which provided clean drinking water to New York City.
