Review of 142 Henry Street by Carter Horsley

Tucked between the Manhattan and Williamsburg Bridges, the former Garfield Building at 142 Henry Street on the Lower East Side has been converted to mostly full-floor condominium apartments.

The attractive, 8-story, pale-orange-brick building, one of the taller buildings on the Lower East Side, is across Henry Street from the handsome, gray-stone St. Teresa Catholic Church and it is one block south of Seward Park at the intersection of East Broadway and Canal Street.

In addition to having its name emblazoned on the limestone entrance façade, it is also emblazed, along with its date of construction, 1912, at the center of the top of its Henry Street façade, which has a single column of fire-escapes.

The top two floors of the building have arched windows and the building s façade has nice masonry piers. The building has a roof garden, video security, high ceilings, an elevator sidewalk landscaping and an exposed rooftop water tank. It is diagonally across Rutgers Street from the Captain Jacob Joseph Playground.

The developers and architects for the building, which is close to a F Subway station, were Ronald Castellano and Christopher Haynes.

Initial prices ranged from about $750,000 to $1,675,000.
