History and Analysis

1098-1108 Jefferson Avenue was built in conjunction with the structures at 1035-1057 Jefferson Avenue and 1197-1205 Bushwick Avenue. Three stories high and three bays wide, these buildings have unusual wooden cornices, dog-tooth detailing around the windows, and symmetrical wooden carving on the window lintels and door frames creating a checkerboard pattern, reminiscent of the notch-edge carving common in the Tramp Art movement. These structures were built for $4,000 each in 1890 as a speculative development venture by Stephen J. Burrows who resided at 236 Ainslie Street.
