The Isaac T. Hopper House, a Greek Revival townhouse at 110 Second Avenue between East 6th and 7th Streets in the East Village neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City, next to the New Middle Collegiate Church, was built in 1837-38. It was built as a rowhouse, and was originally the residence of David H. Robertson, a merchant who later went bankrupt. The house then became the home of Ralph and Ann E. Van Wyck Mead, one of four rowhouses used by their extended family. It remained owned by the Mead family until 1870, and in 1874 was purchased by the Women's Prison Association, founded by Quaker abolitionists and prison reformers Isaac Tatem Hopper and his daughter Abigail Hopper Gibbons. The Isaac T. Hopper Home continues to serve the Women's Prison Association as a halfway house.[2][3]

The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1986, and was designated a New York City landmark in 2009. It is also located within the East Village/Lower East Side Historic District, which was created in October 2012.[2]
