Carter Horsley's Review of The Franconia

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This red-brick, mid-block, apartment building has a three-story limestone base with a canopied entrance with a revolving door. It was erected in 1925 and converted to a cooperative in 1983.

It has a concierge and a nice marble lobby, but no balconies, no sidewalk landscaping, no health club and no garage. It has a three-story, rusticated limestone base and its top three stories are also faced with limestone." Read Carter's Full Review
