40. Shinkle Row

This seven unit row house was built in 1860 by Amos Shinkle who is famous for building the Roebling Suspension Bridge. It is a beautiful brick house with nice Italianate finishes and a small wrought iron fence bordering the front.

Beautiful places.
Great earl skylights and woodwork.
Other history sources would be great.
The corner sign says ?1880 but I believe 1860 is correct.
The Ball row houses are likely same vintage?
There are 2 other townhouses 224 and 228 that are similar but freestanding from this seven.
