Description

Originally known as the “Fred Leighton Building,” the full-service apartment building was completed in 1908, landmarked in 1977 and converted to cooperative apartments in 1987. The opulent exterior features a curving French Renaissance-style façade with an eclectic mix of Elizabethan and Flemish Gothic details. The building has a live-in resident manager, laundry facility, pets are welcome, and the board allows pieds-a-terres on a case-by-case basis.

Carter Horsley's Review

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"45 East 66th Street is one of three very interesting and highly decorative mid-rise apartment buildings designed shortly after the turn of the 20th Century by Harde & Short.

The others include the Alwyn Court at 180 West 58th Street and the Studio Building at 44 West 77th Street." Read Carter's Full Review
