This attractive but bulky,
beige-brick, 12-story building was erected in 1925 and is a cooperative
with 67 apartments.
The building has a prime
Carnegie Hill location close to many important cultural institutions
and private schools as well as nice has a one-story limestone
base with a two-story limestone entrance surround with very nice
flanking wall lanterns as well as one at the Madison Avenue corner,
a nice touch. The building has sidewalk landscaping, a doorman,
a nice lobby, a cornice, a variety of different and very attractive
window reveals and protruding air-conditioners. It has no garage
and no health club and inconsistent fenestration.
There is good cross-town
bus service on 86th Street and a subway station at 86th Street
and Lexington Avenue. A supermarket is one block away and there
is a newsstand and a pharmacy across the avenue.
