    How was this building rated?

    This attractive, 17-story apartment building was erected in 1954 and converted to a cooperative in 1987. It has 89 apartments.

    The red-brick building has a brass entrance marquee and canopied entrance, a doorman, some corner windows, sidewalk landscaping, basement storage, discrete air-conditioners and no garage, no balconies, no health club and no roof deck.

    This is a lively section of the Upper East Side and there are many restaurants in the vicinity, especially to the north on Second Avenue. Second Avenue, on the other hand, has considerable traffic headed for the Queensborough Bridge 10 blocks to the south.

    There is cross-town bus service on 72nd and 67th Streets and a subway station is several blocks away at 67th Street and Lexington Avenue.
