This attractive, mid-block, red-brick apartment building at 120 East 36th Street is across from the entrance to The Morgan Library, one of the city's major cultural institutions and a major landmark in the Murray Hill neighborhood.

It was erected in 1955 by the Winter Organization and designed by Greenberg & Ames. The Winter Organization was founded in 1901 by Benjamin Winter Sr., and its holdings include the Crown Building at 730 Fifth Avenue, 800 Fifth Avenue, 210 Central Park South, 155 East 73rd Street, 135 East 74th Street, and 130 East 75th Street. The company's website notes the founder's portfolio "came to include such prominent buildings as the Astor Mansion, the Vanderbilt mansion, the Hotel Delmonico, the Stanhope, the Hotel Leonori, the Pennsylvania Building and the Spanish Flats.

This 13-story building has 97 cooperative apartments. The building has a one-story white marble entrance surround, sidewalk landscaping, a roof deck, part-time doorman, and a live-in superintendent. It permits pets and has discrete air-conditioners, a few terraces and no balconies.

A plaque on the building placed in 1965 by the New York Community Trust noted that Henry Lewis Stimson (1867-1950)lived in a house on the site from 1921 to 1927. He served as Secretary of State in the cabinet of President Herbert Hoover from 1929 to 1933. He also was Secretary of War from 1911 to 1913 and from 1940 to 1945. From 1927 to 1929 he was Governor General of the Philippines.
