The service entrance to this handsome building has a nice bas-relief scultpure of a three-masted ship.

The 16-story building was erected in 1919 and converted to a cooperative in 1979. It has 64 apartments.

It is one of many pre-war buildings with sidewalk landscaping and seating that make this one of the city's nicest residential blocks. The east end of this quiet street faces Manhattan Square, the large park in which the American Museum of Natural History stands.

Its central Upper West Side location is very close to famous stores along Broadway and a delightful stretch of sidewalk caf¿s a few blocks north on Amsterdam Avenue.

There is very good public transportation and this area is convenient to the various amenities of the Lincoln Center District about a dozen blocks to the south.

The building has terracotta decorative elements and a step-down lobby. It permits protruding air-conditioners and has no garage and no health club.
