Carter Horsley's Review

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This handsome, mid-block building at 236 West 26th Street was erected in 1925 and designed by Shampan & Shampan, which also designed the Commercial Exchange Building at 307-9 Seventh Avenue, the Industrial Building at 150 West 28th Street, 555 Eighth Avenue and the Ageloff Towers at 172 East 4th and 141 East 3rd streets.

The 12-story building, which is known as Capitol, has 25 co-operative apartments and is across the street from the Fashion Institute of Technology." Read Carter's Full Review
