Description

With the Depression, the Upper West Side began to deteriorate, a trend that continued for several decades and many property owners began to cut corners on maintenance. As a result, many fine, distinguished buildings, such as this one, were shorn of their elaborate copper cornices. Indeed, many residential buildings have resisted landmark designation because of concerns over the high expense of adequate maintenance and restoration, especially of highly decorative building elements such as cornices. Hopefully, someday the owners of such properties will realize that their denuded buildings will improve in value significantly over time if such desecrations are addressed and repaired/restored. This 12-story, 83-unit, brown-brick building, which has a two-story limestone base, was erected in 1902 and converted to a condominium in 1981. The fifth and sixth floors are unusually because they have many protruding bay windows to provide strong visual accents to the building. This area of Columbus Avenue is one of the liveliest on the Upper West Side and underwent significant gentrification in the 1980's. It has many interesting restaurants and boutiques. It is only a few blocks north of the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and cross-town buses run on 66th and 65th Streets. An express subway station is a few blocks away at 72nd Street and Broadway.
