Carter Horsley's Review

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"The 14-story structure at 988 Fifth Avenue on the southeast corner at 80th Street is one of the most elegant and exclusive buildings on the avenue because of its very fine detailing and the fact that it has only 12 condominium apartments. 

Exquisitely designed in Italian-Renaissance-palazzo-style by J. E. R. Carpenter, this building has a sidestreet entrance and sidewalk landscaping. It was built in 1926 and converted to a condominium in 1981, one of the very few on Fifth Avenue." Read Carter's Full Review
