Carter Horsley's Review

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This very handsome, 16-story, mid-block building was erected in 1928. It is a cooperative with 65 apartments.
The red-brick building has multipaned windows and a striking Art Deco-style, one-step-up entrance with a gray marble entrance surround. It has a doorman, sidewalk landscaping and is just to the east of the Samuel Seabury Playground and just to the west of P.S. 198, and just to the west of the Isidor and Ada Straus School and as a result this building has considerable "light-and-air," especially since it is also across 96th Street from the impressive mid-block gardens of the Monterey, a large, curved luxury apartment building on the northwest corner at Third Avenue, across the avenue from the handsome, large mosque designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill."
