Sniffen Court, a New York Historic District and National Register of Historic Places, 150-158 East 36th Street.
These ten brick stables were build in the 1850s by a local builder John Sniffen in the early Romanesque Revival style. Converted in the 1920s into townhouses, with a studio at the south end and a small theater, The Amateur Comedy Club, on the north end. Horses once watered at the hand pump in front of the rear wall at the far end of the flagstone-paved alley, which is adorned with handsome plaques of Greek horsemen by the sculptress Malvina Hoffman, who maintained her studio there during the 1920s and '30s.
Black on ivory paper approximately 11" x 14".
