116 Sullivan Street House

Built in 1832, this federal style house has an extremely unusual original doorway.  Typical of many Village federal houses, the six-paneled door is flanked by Ionic colonnettes and topped by a fan light.  However, note the very unusual sidelights -- each one is broken into three ovals with wooden frames carved to simulate a cloth curtain  drawn through a series of rings.  The upper two floors of the house were added in 1872.
