230 West End Avenue: Review and Ratings

between West 70th Street & West 71st Street View Full Building Profile

Review of 230 West End Avenue by Carter Horsley

Built in 1927, this dignified, 17-story building at 230 West End Avenue on the corner at 70th Street has a location very close to an express subway station at 72nd Street and Broadway.

The 114-unit building was designed by Rosario Candela for Ralph Ciluzzi and was converted to a cooperative in 1980.

Although the giant Riverside South complex that added many residential towers between 72nd and 59th Streets along Riverside Drive changed some views from this building and added more congestion to the area, it also significantly improved the urban ambiance.

Bottom Line

Despite the new construction in the area and the congestion at Broadway and 72nd Street, this building's location is quite quiet and very attractive as well as convenient to neighborhood shopping.


The beige-brick building has a canopied entrance with a classical surround beneath a very large and broad arched window.

The building has sidewalk landscaping and a two-story base with quoins and arched window tops at the corners.

The seventh floor has decorative window sills and the top floor has arched decorative elements above the windows.

The corners have slightly projecting piers that add modulation to the building’s façades.

The building permits protruding air-conditioners.


The building has a doorman, a live-in superintendent, a bicycle room, storage and a laundry. 

It does not allow pets.


Apartment 7A is a studio unit with an 18-foot-long living area and an open kitchen.

Apartment 7C is a one-bedroom unit with an entry foyer leading to a 23-foot-long living/dining room next to an enclosed, eat-in, 14-foot-long kitchen.
