The Kenedale, 47 East 88th Street: Review and Ratings

between Madison Avenue & Park Avenue View Full Building Profile

Carter Horsley
Review of 47 East 88th Street by Carter Horsley

This very handsome, apartment building was built in 1930 and converted to a cooperative in 1957.

The 16-story building has 58 large apartments.

The brown-brick building has a three-story limestone base and some setbacks at its top. It is distinguished by limestone quoin accents near the top of its base at the corners and nice rope quoins at the corners over the arched sidestreet entrance, which has attractive twisted columns and sidewalk landscaping. This is one of the handsomest of the pre-war buildings along Madison Avenue in the 80's and 90's.

The building has a canopied, step-up entrance with a very attractive lobby and a doorman and a gym. It permits protruding air-conditioners and has no garage, and no sundeck.

This is a central Carnegie Hill location, close to several private schools, many major cultural institutions and several religious institutions as well as very good neighborhood shopping.

This sidestreet between Madison and Park Avenue has considerable "light and air" because one major building is set back in a nice plaza and two others have large gardens.

A supermarket is half a block away and there are several nice restaurants along Madison Avenue a few blocks to the north.

There is excellent cross-town bus service at 86th Street and an express subway station at 86th Street and Lexington Avenue. This building is located close to several major museums and there is a very nice cafe at the Church of the Heavenly Rest on the southeast corner of Fifth Avenue and 90th Street.
