Carter Horsley's Review of The Finch

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This handsome, 13-story, mid-block apartment building was erected in 1920 and is a cooperative with 40 units.

It is on a pretty block and is just to the west of the Morris & Ida Newman Educational Center of the Ramaz School, one of the city's most attractive modern buildings, which has a silvery metal façade with very unusual fenestration and was designed in 1980 by Conklin & Rossant."
