    How was this building rated?

    This pleasant, 17-story, dark brown-brick building was erected in 1938 and converted to a cooperative in 1981. It has 96 apartments.

    The mid-block building has a three-story limestone base and a limestone entrance surround. It is just to the east of a very attractive, red-brick with green trim, 5-story building known as Cassidy's Place that is operated by the Association to Benefit Children.

    The building, which is not too far from Carl Schurz Park, has a canopied entrance and an elevator person. It has consistent fenestration and permits protruding air-conditioners. The building does not have balconies or terraces or a sundeck but apartments have fireplaces.

    There is convenient neighborhood shopping and restaurants as well as excellent crosstown bus service. This portion of 86th Street is relatively quiet.
