This beige-brick, 12-story building at 141 East Third Street and a similar one just to the north on the same block at 172 East 4th Street in the East Village was erected in 1929 by Samuel Ageloff.

Both buildings were designed by Shampan & Shampan, who were best known for some commercial buildings in the Garment Center including the 17-story Shampan Building at 252 West 37th Street that was built in 1924.

This cooperative building has 102 apartments.

Bottom Line

One of the few big and highly visible pre-war apartment buildings in the East Village, this building was long regarded as one of the premier addresses in the neighborhood.

Description

The buildings have canopied entrances beneath terracotta friezes of leashed lionesses pulling Near Eastern men.

They stand out in the East Village neighborhood for their scale and their "uptown" detailing.

The two buildings are not perfectly aligned but are very similar with somewhat crenellated rooflines and two bandcourses.

Amenities

This building has an elevator operator, a live-in superintendent, a bicycle room, a large lobby, beamed ceilings and laundry facilities and it is pet friendly.

Apartments

Many of the apartments have eat-in kitchens and windowed bathrooms.

Apartment 11A has a 7-foot-wide entry foyer that opens onto an 18-foot-long living room that leads to a 16-foot-long bedroom.

Apartment 3D is a one-bedroom unit that has a 10-foot-wide entry foyer that opens onto a 23-foot-long living room and an enclosed 18-foot-long kitchen/dining alcove.

Apartment 12I is a one-bedroom unit that has a 8-foot-wide entry foyer that opens on a 10-foot-long eat-in kitchen and an 18-foot-long living room.
