Morgan Studios at 170 East 78th Street: Review and Ratings

Carter Horsley
Review of 170 East 78th Street 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 CityRealty.com.
 

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.

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.

Most of the windows retain their original multipaned fenestration. This building has no garage, no health club, no sidewalk landscaping and no roof deck.

This is a very attractive and quiet street that is convenient to many restaurants, stores and religious and educational institutions. There is a subway station nearby at 77th Street and Lexington Avenue, where Lenox Hill Hospital is located, and there is very good cross-town bus service on 79th Street.

Although the apartments do not have many rooms, the living rooms are very impressive with their quite tall ceilings.
