It is directly across 72nd
Street from the former Gertrude Rhinelander Waldo building that
is now the Ralph Lauren store and it is directly across the avenue
from the very impressive luxury apartment building at 19 East
72nd Street whose limestone facade it complements.
The doorman building has
a canopied entrance and a frieze across the top of its roofline.
It permits protruding air-conditioners and one of its retail tenants,
William Graham Arader III, has a "baby" canopy adjacent
to the entrance on 72nd Street. The building has inconsistent
fenestration, no garage, no balconies and no sidewalk landscaping.
It is close to a major entrance
to Central Park and not far from several major museums and art
galleries. Cross-town bus service is convenient as are many boutiques
and restaurants in this prime Lenox Hill area, which is not, however,
close to a subway station.
