Info & Ratings - Overview
- Building Type: Cooperative
- Located in Central Park West
- 1918Year Built
There are only two grand "studio" buildings that face Central Park: this one and the Gainsborough on Central Park South.
The Gainsborough has a much lovelier façade than this 15-story, brown-brick building, which was erected in 1918 and is a cooperative with 69 apartments.
This building is rather deceptive as its frontage on the park indicates that it only has only 7 floors, most with double-height windows, but its side-street façade has double-height windows only at its corners. The building’s cornice, interestingly, is two stories from its top. The building’s simple, canopied entrance with a limestone surround is on the sidestreet, which has several other pre-war "studio" buildings, including the Des Artistes, across the street, as well as several ABC-TV facilities.
The building is across from the entrance to the Tavern-on-the-Green Restaurant in Central Park, which illuminates its trees at night.
The building has a doorman and protruding air-conditioners, but no sidewalk landscaping, no garage, no health club, no balconies and no roof deck.
There is excellent public transportation nearby and the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and many restaurants and stores are also nearby.
