Moquette Row Housing, Moquette Row North & Moquette Row South, Yonkers, Westchester County, NY
- Upscale 2x6144x7680
Significance: The two Moquette Rows, even though truncated, remain a unique example of industrial housing in Westchester County, and are reminiscent of architectural precedents in the industrial cities of Scotland, the home of Alexander Smith, whose company built this row housing
Their siting, simple forms, and generous backyards are reminders of a paternalistic aspect of American capitalism, during that period of rapid industrial expansion which occurred in the north after the Civil War.
