Review of 935 Park Avenue by Carter Horsley

This red-brick apartment building at 935 Park Avenue on the southeast corner at 81st Street was erected in 1924 and converted to a cooperative in 1961.

The 17-story building was designed by Sugarman, Hess & Berger.

It has 33 units.

Bottom Line

A pre-war apartment building with some fireplaces in a good location.

Description

It has an attractive, canopied entrance with two-story-high limestone fluted pilasters and a frieze around its third floor and at the top of the building. The building has a nice paneled lobby in dark wood and only two apartments per floor.

There is a balcony on the 11th floor and a bandcourse and balconies above the 13th floor and a cornice element with vertical bars.

It has inconsistent fenestration, permits protruding and discrete air-conditioners and has no sidewalk landscaping.

History

The site was purchased from Frederick Brown in by Samuel Barkin & Sons in 1922. It was sold in 1928 to an investor, a client of Arnstein & Levy. It was purchased in 1934 by Tishman Realty & Construction Company representing an investing syndicate that had also bought Hampton House, a 15-story apartment hotel at the southeast corner of Madison Avenue and 70th Street a few months before.

Location

The building is not far from the Metropolitan Museum of Art and many boutiques and art galleries along Madison. Cross-town buses run on 79th Street and one of the city s best schools, PS 6, is nearby in this very desirable neighborhood.
