This handsome, 15-story, 67-unit cooperative apartment house was designed by Schwartz & Gross and completed in 1926.
The same architects designed the apartment buildings at 885, 888, 912, 983, 1165 and 1185 Park Avenue, among others.
This building has two apartments on each floor for each elevator and all apartments have fireplaces. What distinguishes this building from many pre-war apartment buildings is its high level of security and its extensive amenities.
Elevator access to each floor is controlled from a panel at the concierge's desk and the freight elevator is controlled in a similar fashion.
The red-brick building has a doorman, health club, a children's playroom with library and a half-court basketball court. It has no garage and no sidewalk landscaping.
With large apartments of up to four bedrooms, this is a very desirable family building in the Carnegie Hill neighborhood, which is noted for its schools and museums.
