How was this building rated?

This building at 340 West 57th Street is one of four handsome, mid-block apartment houses known as the Parc Vendome that share a large common, landscaped garden that differs from most of the city's other large courtyard projects because it is not enclosed by high walls at the east and south ends. 

The four-building complex, which has about 575 apartments, is unusual also because the south buildings at 333 West 56th Street and 353 West 56th Street are 11 stories tall while the north buildings at 340 and 350 East 57th Street are 19 stories tall. The south building at 353 West 56th Street was completed in 1931 while 340 East 57th Street was completed in 1932 and 350 East 57th Street was completed in 1929.

The complex actually consists of only two buildings, one on 57th Street and one on 56th Street, but each has two official entrances. 

The Parc Vendome complex was designed by Farrar & Watmough for Henry Mandel, one of the city’s most ambitious and active developers in the 1920s. 

Mandel's other project, also designed by Farrar & Watmough, included London Terrace on the block bounded by 23rd and 24th Streets and Ninth and Tenth Avenues. 

The Parc Vendome complex was converted to condominium apartments in 1983.
