Carter Horsley's Review of 161 West 16th Street

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This very handsome, 19-story, light-orange-brick apartment building at 161 West 16th Street on the northeast corner at Seventh Avenue in Chelsea was erected in 1930.  It has 155 cooperative apartments.

It was built by Henry Mandel who in 1930 purchased a site from Otto H. Hahn on 57th Street between Eighth and Ninth Avenues that had been considered as a site for the Metropolitan Opera and where Mr. Mandel erected the four-building Park Vendome apartment complex." Read Carter's Full Review
