Pomander Walk

4 Pomander WalkThrough a little metal gate on West 95th Street (looking like any other gate to a courtyard or back alley) lies a private pedestrian street between Broadway and West End Avenue. This quiet lane of multi-colored Tudor houses almost looks like a stage set so it is appropriate that the name, “Pomander Walk” is actually derived from an early 20th century play. The charming old houses, rather than looking out of place in the neighborhood, make the neighborhood look out of place with them.



  1. Quite a few actors lived there over the years. Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Becall lived there and I believe Mary Martin did too.

  2. Judy Baker

    Amazing. I lived in that area for years and I had no idea that this existed.
