    How was this building rated?

    This handsome, Italian Renaissance-palazzo-style building is distinguished by some very attractive Venetian-style decorative balconies. It was erected in 1915 and converted to a cooperative in 1988. It has 55 apartments.

    The light beige-brick, 12-story building has a canopied entrance, flanked by paired pilasters, with bronze doors. The building's address is incised above the entrance as are the letters "J" and "P." The building, which has a cornice and several bandcourses, has a concierge and sidewalk landscaping.

    The building's façade has protruding air-conditioners and consistent fenestration.

    This is an attractive and quiet stretch of West End Avenue and is convenient to public transportation and one block from Riverside Park. Neighborhood shopping is convenient and steadily improving as high-end retailers continue to advance up Broadway.
