Description

This 13-story apartment building is located at 219 West 81st Street on the northeast corner at Broadway.

The building was erected in 1912 and was designed by Gaetano Ajello, who was the architect also for 473, 505, 575, 645 West End Avenue, the Rexor Apartments on Broadway at 116th Street, the Luxor Apartments on Broadway at 115th Street and 17 East 89th Street.

The building underwent a significant overhaul in the 2000s during which its façade was restored and new windows were installed as well as new plumbing, elevator and mechanical systems.

Gruzen Samton was the architectural firm for the conversion.
