Carter Horsley's Review of The Orwell House

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This large and handsome apartment house was erected in 1906 at 257 Central Park West on the southwest corner at 86th Street and converted to a cooperative in 1980.

The 13-story, red-brick building has 69 apartments and was designed by Mulliken and Moeller, who also designed Rossleigh Court immediately to the south on the same block. They also desgined the similar Bretton Hall Hotel on the east side of Broadway between 85th and 86th Streets and the wonderful Lucerne on the northwest corner of 79th Street and Amsterdam Avenue."
