Governors IslandOnce known as Brick Row or Regimental Row and now as Colonels' Row, the group of eight brick houses in front of you was built by the Army between 1893 and 1917. Although all were built to standard Army plans, slight variations over the years have made the houses unique. Most of the alterations took place around 1938 under the supervision of the Works Progress Administration - a program created to provide jobs for the nation's growing number of unemployed during the Great Depression. Garages were added at this time, along with the impressive line of London Plane trees which front these houses along Hay Road.
