This attractive, 14-story,
apartment building was erected in 1928. It is a cooperative and
has only 14 units.
Overlooking not only the
elegant townhouses across 58th Street that share a large communal
garden overlooking the East River, but also a row of townhouses
tucked behind it on the north side of 58th Street also overlooking
the river, this exclusive building has fabulous protected views
to the east and south.
This building has a doorman,
a canopied entrance with sidewalk landscaping and permits protruding
air-conditioners. It has a handsome rooftop watertank enclosure,
a two-story limestone base with a handsome broken pediment entrance
surround, strongly expressed brick quoins, no garage, inconsistent
fenestration and no health club. It has three string courses and
a cornice one floor beneath its roofline. It is not close to a
subway, but there is very good cross-town bus service on 57th
There is an excellent supermarket
that shares some of the vault space beneath the nearby Queensborough
Bridge at 59th Street with a large restaurant.
