On May 10, 1890 the Record & Guide reported that Gordon Bros. had purchased the northwest corner of Tenth Avenue and 80th Street "for improvement." The firm was busily erecting rows of flathouses throughout what was then still called the West End, almost always turning to architect Gilbert A. Schellenger for their designs. By the time the Schellenger filed plans for the site on May 31 Tenth Avenue had been renamed Amsterdam Avenue.
