How was this building rated?

This handsome 19-story red-brick apartment building at 444 Central Park West, was erected on the northwest corner of 104th Street in 1929.

It has 123 apartments and was converted by Curtis Katz to a cooperative in 1976.

It was designed by Boak & Paris whose other buildings include 5, 22, 100 and 315 Riverside Drive, 5 West 86th Street, 336 West End Avenue, 45 Christopher Street, and the Brevoort East Apartments.

He continutes: "In 1933 they did their first building for Samuel Minskoff, an apartment house at 3 East 66th Street. Many elements of their later work appear there: elegant window grills of iron with brass trim; multicolored terrazzo floors of geometric style; varicolored marble lobby fireplaces; dropped living rooms; neo-Classical details reworked in modern style; sophisticated molded plaster ceiling decoration; and elaborate iron and brass entry doors, also in modern style."

Unfortunately, Boak and Paris split up in 1942. Gray notes that Boak entered into a new partnernship with Thomas O. Raad in 1944, two years after his original partner retired. Gray notes that the new duo also contributed some inventive architecture to the city, specifically...
