Description of Morgan Studios at 170 East 78th Street

170 East 78th Street is a nine-story, 38-unit cooperative built in the Art Deco style in 1927 as one of the Morgan Studio buildings. 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. Central Park, fine dining and shopping, art galleries, and mass transit connections are close by. Pets and pied-a-terres are allowed.

Carter Horsley's Review of Morgan Studios

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.

It has a one-story limestone base and a one-and-half-story limestone and gray marble entrance. It has a doorman, a canopied entrance with a three-step-down vestibule and some protruding air-conditioners." Read Carter's Full Review
