How was this building rated?

One of the city's important Art Deco residential buildings and one of the city's first major mixed-use buildings, this 24-story tower has been a prominent landmark on the Upper West Side since it was erected in 1929.

Color was also an important ingredient of the building's success: the shaded brick, carefully graded from dark at the base to light at the top, suggested to Ferriss "a kind of growth...," the authors added.

In their book, "The A.I.A. Guide to New York, Third Edition," (Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1989), Elliot Willensky and Norval White noted that Roeric...
