The cellar currently houses the laundry room, mechanicals and storage. It can also be excavated to create a full floor with ample space for a gym.

This area of Manhattan feels like a village in the middle of the busiest city in the world. 18 East 93rd Street is one of a Romanesque Revival row of townhouses built by the father-son team of Walter Reid and Walter Reid, Jr. in 1892-93. The Reids used uniform materials and color, with two distinct alternating façades, adding a harmonious rhythm to this outstanding block.
