231-235 2nd Avenue I

This building at the northwest corner of 14th Street is labeled the W.M. Everts and the U.S. Senate--referring to Sen. William Maxwell Evarts, who also served as U.S. secretary of state and attorney general, and whose home was replaced by this building c. 1901. Evarts' grandson, famed editor Maxwell Evarts Perkins, was born here in 1884.
