Carter Horsley's Review of The Terra Cotta

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"One of the city's loveliest apartment buildings and probably its most attractive and elegant white-brick building, this 13-story building was erected in 1912 and converted to a condominium in 1988.

In their fine book, "George & Edward Blum, Texture and Design in New York Apartment House Architecture," (The Friends of Terra Cotta Press, 1993), Andrew S. Dolkart and Susan Tunick note that this building was erected the same year as the Evanston at 610 West End Avenue that the Blums designed for George F. Johnson Jr., and Leopold Kahn. The Blums also designed the Admaston apartment building at 259 West 89th Street the same year for Johnson and Kahn. The Johnson-Kahn Company had previously built the Hendrick Hudson Apartments on Riverside Drive at 110th Street and the adjoining annex and the authors suggest that Edward Blum "may have been the designer" of these two major buildings for the architect of record, William L. Rouse." Read Carter's Full Review
