Carter Horsley's Review of Rhapsody on Fifth

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This four-story building on the southwest corner at 127th Street was renovated in 2006 by AFC Realty Capital, of which Arthur Fefferman is president, into "Rhapsody on Fifth" by expanding it by two stories to create a 22-unit residential condominium apartments.

The existing, red-brick building has a rusticated limestone base, rusticated quoins, numerous stone decorative balconies and decorative stone trim around the windows some of which arched. It was missing its cornice, but the renovation plans called for the "recreation" of a cornice the carving out of a large interior courtyard for the use of residents." Read Carter's Full Review
