Review 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 CityRealty.com.
 

This handsome, 19-story apartment building at 930 Fifth Avenue on the northeast corner at 74th Street was erected in 1940 by Harold and Percy Uris and designed by Emery Roth. This classical-style apartment house has Italian Renaissance motifs and a superior location facing the model boat pond in Central Park. It has 138 co-operative apartments and replaced mansions owned by the Chapin, Rentschler and Schiff families. This is quite formal compared to some of Roth's other designs, but its fine proportions, beautiful detailing, and superior location make up for any lack of exuberance. Features include Greek volutes, bracketed loggia, balustrades, pilasters, broken pediments, and cherubs' faces. 

Bottom Line

This elegant building has a prime Fifth Avenue location, an elevator operator, doorman and concierge and architecture and spacious layouts by Emery Roth as well as some fireplaces.

Description

The beige-brick building has a one-story rusticated limestone base and the second and third floors have limestone façades.

The building has a few setbacks near its top which is surmounted by a fine, tall, watertank enclosure.

The building has an entrance marquee on the sidestreet over an indented curved entrance.  It has nice sidewalk landscaping and permits window air-conditioners.

Amenities

The building has a doorman, a concierge and an elevator operator, a fitness center, a bicycle room, storage and a laundry.
