325 West 86th Street: Review and Ratings

Review of 325 West 86th Street by Carter Horsley

This attractive, beige-brick apartment building was erected in 1926 and converted to a cooperative in 1989.

The 15-story building has 50 apartments.

This quiet block is one of the more impressive cross-blocks on the Upper West Side with several distinguished buildings.

The Italian Renaissance-palazzo-style building has a canopied entrance with a two-story limestone base and alternating curved and arched pediments above the third-floor windows as well as some decorative balconies and a nice cornice.

It has consistent fenestration and permits protruding air-conditioners, but has no doorman, no concierge, no garage, no sidewalk landscaping and no health club.

It is a few steps from Riverside Park to the west and there is excellent cross-town bus service a block away to the east. There is a subway station at 86th Street and Broadway and this neighborhood has excellent shopping and restaurants and a movie complex is also close by as are several religious institutions.
