Overview

Some famous buildings in New York are best known for their unusual decoration and some for their unusual shapes.

It was designed by Herman Lee Meader and developed by Leslie R. Palmer.

The building, which is known was the Cliff Dwellers’ Apartments, was erected in 1914 and converted to a co-operative in 1979.  It has 43 apartments.
