Built 1859-1860 by granite dealer Thomas Crane and stone cutter Alexander McDonald. The two men developed plans for Nos. 129-137 E. 35th Street and then transferred titles to investors during the building process. This second phase of development in Murray Hill's historic district reflected the wealth of middle class families in the years before the Civil War. Much of the original rich architectural detail survives, including the stoop and railings, the surround and hood over the main entryway, and the building's cornice.
