For history buffs: this building was originally located on Bellevue Ave between Berkeley Ave and East Bowery Street. It's earliest use was as a hotel for French seamstresses. It was later used as a single family home by Dr. Christopher Horseman, a veterinarian. Dr. Horsemen came to America from Dinsdale, Durham, England, which is where the name Dinsdale Cottage came from. The home was eventually turned into apartments, then completely and beautifully refurbished in 2005, when it was converted to it's existing use.
