Carter Horsley's Review of 140 East 40th Street

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This very attractive, 14-story, Art Deco-style apartment building was erected in 1930. It was converted to a cooperative in 1980 and has 98 units.

The mid-block building has slightly protruding center piers that culminate in two short towers and these piers are accented by black and brown masonry patterning with dark, narrow balconies at the top and bottom. The building has consistent, multi-paned fenestration, a doorman, a nice red terracotta cornice with a geometric design, and some terraces. The canopied entrance is flanked by wall lanterns and leads to a five-step-down vestibule." Read Carter's Full Review
