Carter Horsley's Review of 131 Fifth Avenue

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This very handsome and robust Beaux-Arts style building at 131 Fifth Avenue between 19th and 20th streets was erected in 1903 for Lord & Taylor, the department store, and designed by Israels & Harder for the estate of James A. Roosevelt.  The same architects designed the cast-iron, neo-Renaissance-style building at 4 East 20th Street for the same client and tenant. 

After the store moved further uptown on the avenue in 1915, it was converted to loft space and showrooms and in 1979 the buildings were converted to 23 residential co-operative apartments with an entrance at 4 East 20th Street." Read Carter's Full Review
