Description

This handsome Art Deco-style tower was erected in 1929 as a hotel and converted to cooperative apartments in 1980. It has 459 units.

Its 32 stories make it the tallest building in the Tudor City complex developed by Fred F. French that anchors the east end of 42nd Street.

The Tudor City parks, which flank 42nd Street, however, are up large staircases on either side of 42nd Street to the east. Tudor City is one of the city's most distinguished residential enclaves, notably for its Tudor-style decorative façades that are complemented by the brown-brick façade of this tower.

This building is across the street from the Ford Foundation Building that was designed by Kevin Roche John Dinkeloo Associates and was innovative for its huge, windowed atrium. Other very famous landmarks in this area include the United Nations complex at the east end of the block and the former Daily News and Chrysler Buildings to the west. There is excellent cross-town bus service and numerous restaurants in this area.

The building has a canopied entrance, a four-story limestone entrance surround, a doorman and a concierge. The building permits protruding air-conditioners and has a health club and some terraces, but no balconies, no garage and no roof deck.
