Carter Horsley's Review of The Riviera

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This impressive, 13-story building at 790 Riverside Drive at 157th Street in Washington Heights was erected in 1910 by the Rivera Realty Corporation of which Max Ash was the president and is known as The Riviera.

It has 199 cooperative apartments and was designed by Rouse & Gladstone in the Beaux-Arts style. It stands in the heart of the landmarked Audubon Park Historic District. This premier building, which is also known as 629-641 West 156th Street and 618-630 West 157th Street, overlooks the Hudson River. Residents of this doorman building enjoy storage, bike room, resident superintendent, and central laundry. Pets are welcome." Read Carter's Full Review
