The building has a cavernous marble lobby with a stained glass ceiling is a monument to the elegance of a bygone era and it remains as one of the premier apartment houses in the area.

It is located near Columbia University and on a particularly beautiful stretch of Riverside Park with architecturally outstanding buildings.
