1650 N Queens, also known as the ‘Polito House’ was built in 1940 by mid century modern architect Raphael Soriano. This house is one of only a dozen houses designed by Soriano that still remain.
1650 N Queens was built before the case study houses. Its 2br /2ba, and just a little under 1,500 sqft with 5,816 sqft lot size. This house could have easily been 500 sqft larger with the same footprint if Soriano had enclosed the two outdoor balconies. The house is perfect for indoor outdoor living, and feels larger than the square footage suggests.
