The Schepp Building at 165 Duane Street: Review and Ratings

Carter Horsley
Review of 165 Duane Street by Carter Horsley
Carter Horsley Carter B. Horsley, a former journalist for The New York Times, The International Herald Tribune and The New York Post. Mr. Horsley is also the editorial director of CityRealty.com.
 

This extremely handsome, Romanesque Revival-style, 11-story warehouse building was designed by Stephen Decatur Hatch in 1880 and was converted in 1980 to 36 cooperative apartments.

The buidling, which is also known as 47-53 Hudson Street and also fronts on Staple Street, was originally a coconut processing plant.

It fronts on Duane Park and has a fire-escape on Hudson Street.
