Description

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.

The building has an exposed rooftop watertank, no garage, no roof deck, no balconies and no health club.

There is excellent cross-town bus service and there is a subway station at Lexington Avenue. The area is a few blocks south of Mount Sinai Hospital and on the northern edge of the Carnegie Hill neighborhood, which has some of the city's leading private schools and many religious and cultural institutions. There is good local shopping.
