140 East 40th Street: Review and Ratings

Carter Horsley
Review of 140 East 40th Street by Carter Horsley
Carter Horsley Carter B. Horsley, a former journalist for The New York Times, The International Herald Tribune and The New York Post. Mr. Horsley is also the editorial director of

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.

The building is two blocks south of the Chrysler Building and Grand Central Terminal.
