Carter Horsley's Review

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This very elegant, mid-block, apartment house was built as a cooperative in 1929. The 14-story building has only 13 apartments.

The bottom two stories of the building's limestone façade are rusticated. The doorman building has a canopied entrance with handsome wrought-iron doors. It has sidewalk landscaping, inconsistent fenestration, no garage and permits protruding air-conditioners. It is just to the east of the luxury apartment tower at 900 Park Avenue that has a large plaza and driveway." Read Carter's Full Review
