Description

170 East 78th Street is a nine-story, 38-unit cooperative built in the Art Deco style in 1927. No two apartments are alike, but all were designed as artists' apartments with high ceilings and oversized windows to allow for abundant natural light. The building is fully staffed with a doorman and live-in superintendent, and basement storage is available.

Carter Horsley's Review

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This handsome, Art Deco-style, red-brick, mid-block building is notable for having many apartments with very high ceilings. It is one of a pair of very similar buildings on the block. The other is 169 East 69th Street, which is just across the street and slightly to the west.

The 9-story, pre-war building is a cooperative with 38 apartments, one story and one apartment less than the one across the street." Read Carter's Full Review
