The Ferrigno house, located at 33-37 163rd St. in Broadway- Flushing, is owned by the National Trust for Historic Preservation in Washington, DC.

The Ferrigno family, who once inhabited this home originally built in 1923, were the founding members of the Broadway Flushing Homeowners Association. The goals of the association were to protect the integrity and appearance of the North Flushing area and maintain the Rickert-Finlay Covenant of 1906. The intent of the association also was to try to establish Flushing as a designated historical district.

The home still retains much of the original woodwork and architecture from when it was originally built more than 90 years ago.

Broadway-Flushing was developed in 1906 by the Rickert-Finlay Realty Company, a major real estate development firm that also developed Bellcourt (1904) in Bayside, Douglas Manor (1906) and Westmoreland (1907) in Little Neck.

The identity of the neighborhood comes from the former name of Northern Boulevard, which was once known as Broadway. Houses in Broadway-Flushing reflect many classic Revival styles from the Eclectic Period, most commonly Colonial and Tudor, as well as Arts and Crafts, American Foursquare and Art Deco, on relatively large properties. In order to preserve the park-like character of the neighborhood, the developer placed restrictive covenants on the properties that ban front yard fences, front yard garages and flat roofs, among other restrictions.
