POMANDER WALK – “theatrical tudor revival”

Pomander Walk

Pomander Walk

• Pomander walk is a one of a kind complex of two-family and three-family dwellings along a private, mid-block garden walkway connecting West 94th Street and West 95th Street, directly west of Broadway. It is a quirky survivor of one man’s theatrical vision and can be best described as Theatrical Tudor Revival. The complex was built in 1921-23 by the developer and theater impresario Thomas Healy based on the designs of King and Campbell Architects. The garden walk flanked by picturesque brick, stone and half-timbered houses was designed to mimic the stage sets for Pomander Walk, a wildly popular Broadway Musical of the day. The apartments attracted a number of theatre and film industry residents throughout its history. Notable residents included Rosalind Russell and Paulette Goddard. The Property was designated an individual New York City Landmark in 1982.
