There are a few wooden homes on the Upper East Side that look like they belong in New England, or a Hollywood studio backlot, or Brooklyn Heights. 120, 122, and 160 East 92nd Street were all built between 1859 and 1871 and are still standing today. It's pretty astonishing, given the buildings weren't even landmarked when rows of homes were being leveled on the UES in the 1950s. So if you ever wanted to live in a Civil War era house in NYC, now is your chance. You only need $18,500 a month! And probably really good credit.
120 East 92nd Street, which was landmarked in 1969, is now on the market as a rental property. According to 6sqft, the 3-story, 4-bedroom home is "one of the last wood-frame houses to be built in Manhattan." From the listing, which keeps trying to relate it to the English countryside:
"A delightful front porch greets you as you walk up to the residence. Upon entry, high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows grace the stunning parlor level which features a large and inviting living room with wood-burning fireplace, and an airy dining room. Also on this floor is a beautiful and comforting eat-in kitchen, completely updated with overhead lighting, a center island and a heart-warming traditional Aga cast iron oven, which reminds one of being in an English country manor..."
it goes on and on and like that, but never mentions the Civil War era ghosts or the mandatory Jane Austen readings in the parlor.
