Seaview Terrace Towne Houses
Address: Seagirt Boulevard and Beach 17th Street
Neighborhood: Far Rockaway
Architect: Weston, Don and Martyn
Current Status: Extant
Award: Bronze Plaque for Residences
These townhouses are distinctly modern yet try to retain the low-rise character of the Rockaways and encourage socialization through front and back porches. The main feature here is the low dip in the eave-line. The buildings are all completely fireproof. Similar townhouses nearby with large center gardens demonstrate the likely success of this development.
