Today, pricey Long Island City typically conjures up images of modern high rises, but the developing neighborhood does retain its historical side.
The tree-lined area, known as Hunters Point Historic District, is home to brick and stone Italianate row houses.
One of these rare homes, built in 1881, is currentlylisted by Douglas Ellimanat$2.2 million. The 2,800 square-foot house — 21-43 45th Ave. — is comprised of a lower two-bedroom duplex with basement and backyard, and an upper two-bedroom duplex. Floor plans for a single-family layout arealso available.
The lower duplex includes vintage details such as a cast iron bathtub, while the second duplex features crown moldings, original ceiling medallions and a decorative fireplace.
