Overview

This pleasant, mid-block, Italian Renaissance-palazzo style, apartment building was erected in 1925 and converted to a cooperative in 1984.

The 16-story, light-orange-brick building has 142 apartments.

It has a very distinctive cornice that is colored blue beneath its arches. The building has a three-story limestone base with a canopied entrance and arched windows on the second floor. It has a concierge and permits protruding air-conditioners. It has no health club, no balconies and no garage.

It has an excellent, central Upper West Side location and is half a block from Central Park and a subway station on Central Park West. It is also close to many restaurants and boutiques on Columbus Avenue and not far from the Lincoln Center District a few blocks to the south.

The Central Park West frontage on this street is anchored by the twin-towered Majestic apartment building on the south and the Dakota on the north, two of the city’s more important residential landmarks.
