Carter Horsley's Review of The Dorchester

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This very fine apartment building at 131 Riverside Drive on the northeast corner at 85th Street has a grand and very impressive entrance on Riverside Drive. It is known as the Dorchester.

The 12-story building was erected in 1909 and converted to a co-operative in 1968.  It was designed by Neville and Bagge for A. C. and H. M. Hall." Read Carter's Full Review
