Walter L. Johnson was a real estate developer in the late 1800's. He developed the woodlands throughout what is now Dyker Heights into a beautiful community of residential homes. He built roads, installed gas, water, phone, electricity and cleared more than 200 building sites. Some of these original homes are still standing and occasionally come up for sale.
As far back as 1899, the Wall Street Journal touted Dyker Heights as the ideal community for the busy Wall Street commuter. In 1899 The Brooklyn Eagle described the homes for sale in Dyker Heights:
"The typical Dyker Heights residences have five rooms each on the first and second floors, and four rooms on the third. Upon entrance, the inmate or visitor is ushered into a hall twelve feet wide which runs back to the butler's pantry. To the right of this hall is the parlor and library, and to the left the reception and dining rooms. The rear space is taken up by the kitchen, butler's pantry and washrooms with tiled floors.
Birdseye maple is used in the finishing of the parlor and quartered oak in that of the library, one with mantles of the same wood in fancy tile finish. A large fireplace with ornamental andirons completes the mural decoration. The ceilings are ten feet high on the first floor, while nine feet is the elevation of the second and eight feet that of the third floor. Usually the dining room is fifteen feet square and finished off in quartered sycamore. Like the hall, the reception room is done off in quartered oak, but is circular in form and has a diameter of ten feet. In the kitchen is a glazed fireplace, while below stairs, speaking from a first floor level, are the cellar and laundry, with a depth of eight feet, and an asphalt double concrete floor."
