Carter Horsley's Review of The Osborne

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"An adulterated residential fortress, the Osborne, which was built in 1883, was one of New York's first major luxury apartment buildings and despite its somber appearance is palatial.

In 1889, Ware raised the roof to add servants quarters and seventeen years later a 25-foot-wing was added at its western end." Read Carter's Full Review
