This 15-story apartment building was erected
in 1927 and converted to a cooperative in 1951. It has 46 apartments.
The structure, which replaced a couple of five-story
residential buildings, has a prime Carnegie Hill location just
across 91st Street from the handsome Brick Presbyterian Church
that was designed by George F. Pelham Jr.
The lower half of the first story of this red-brick
building is faced with marble and an attractive bandcourse runs
around the third story. The building, which has protruding air-conditioners
and consistent fenestration, has a canopied entrance that leads
into a step-up lobby. It has no sidewalk landscaping, no health
club, no garage and no balconies.
There are many fine private schools in this
neighborhood as well as many cultural and religious institutions.
This is one of the city's most desirable neighborhoods for families
and there are several charming restaurants and boutiques nearby
on Madison Avenue.
