William H. Hays, shipmaster bought 195 Amity Street as well as the neighboring lots in 1847. According to the Landmarks Designation Report, "...(Nos. 191-195) were built by Annie (Hays' daughter) and her sister Sarah wife of Frederick A. Blossom, a New York naval stores broker who moved into No.193 in 1855. .Anglo-Italianate in style, the central projecting dwelling is crowned by a pediment which unified the three before the roof cornices were removed from the flanking houses. The handsome rustication of the entrance floor and a bit of the ironwork are retained at Nos.193 and 195."
195 Amity Street is a single family townhouse on a quaint, tree-lined block yet in close proximity to restaurants, boutiques, shops, trains, grocery stores and parks. Some local favorites are Shelsky's, Colonie, La Vara, The Long Island Bar, June, Poppy's and Sahadi's. If you are looking for citywide or national favorites, Trader Joe's, Stumptown, Blue Bottle, Moscot, Aesop and Rag & Bone are close by. Cobble Hill Park is two blocks away.
Prewar details such as wide-plank pumpkin pine flooring, tin ceilings and marble mantels as well as thoughtful modern upgrades (central air conditioning and a renovated kitchen) allow the new owner to enjoy the innate beauty of this historic home and yet have peace of mind as it has been cared for and updated throughout the years. 195 Amity has three full living floors (parlor, garden and finished English basement) as well as two floors of bedrooms (4) with a suburban-size laundry room on to the top floor.
