840 Broadway: Review and Ratings

Carter Horsley
Review of 840 Broadway by Carter Horsley
Carter Horsley Carter B. Horsley, a former journalist for The New York Times, The International Herald Tribune and The New York Post. Mr. Horsley is also the editorial director of

This very handsome, Renaissance revival-style, 12-story co-operative apartment building at 840 Broadway on the southeast corner at 13th Street was erected in 1899.  It has 11 apartments and ground-floor retail space. 

It was designed by Robert Maynicke for Henry Corn. 

Corn was the developer also of the great and highly ornate Alwyn Court Apartments on the southeast corner of 58th Street and Seventh Avenue. 

Maynicke worked for George P. Post's architecture firm from 1872 to 1895 when he formed his own firm. 

This building is one-block south of Union Square and across 13th Street from movie-complex.  It is also half a block up Broadway from the famous Strand Book Store.

Bottom Line

A very handsome late 19th Century warehouse and wholesale building on Broadway one block south of Union Square and one block north of the Strand Bookstore that was converted to co-operative apartments in the 1970s.


The September 25, 2018 description of the building at the city's Landmarks Preservation Commission noted that "the classic tripartite façade with its deeply set fenestration features a chamfered bay at the corner containing the main commercial entryway, a three-story limestone base featuring projecting show windows and double-height columns, an eight-story center section of light tan bricks with terra-cotta window surrounds, arcaded windows at the 12th story, and elaborate ornamentation at the upper levels and cornice." 

The building has bandcourses above the 2nd, third and 9th floors. 

It has arched windows on the 9th and top floors.


The building has a voice intercom system, an elevator and allows washers and dryers in the units.



Apartment 3 is a two-bedroom unit with an 11-foot-wide entry foyer that opens onto a 38-foot-long angled living room, a 12-foot-wide, windowed study and a 9-foot-wide kitchen. 

Apartment 6 is a three-bedroom unit that has a circular entry foyer that opens onto a 45-foot-long, angled, living/dining room and an open kitchen. 

Another apartment is a three-bedroom unit with a 16-foot-wide entry foyer that opens onto a 42-foot-long living/dining room, a 19-foot-wide, windowed library, and an 13-foot-wide kitchen.
