Letter: Remembering Leslie's Retreat


Felt Street was laid out in 1805 through Capt. Felt’s North Salem estate. Because of its shady location, the street was known locally as Lovers’ Lane. It runs from 63 Dearborn to the junction of Orne and Sargent.

Most of the houses here are relatively new, dating from 1914 to 1950. There are two older houses: One, lately called “the other Ropes mansion,” is being happily restored by its new owners. The second is a Colonial-style dwelling built about 1807.

The old Lynde Street house that belonged to Capt. Felt was later moved to 47 Federal St. At one time, it had a tearoom by the name of “The Nook.” It is now the law office of Hensey Judge, P.C.
