1165 Park Avenue; the sculpture in the middle of the avenue is by Louise Nevelson

By Carter B. Horsley

This very attractive apartment house is in a prime Carnegie Hill location across the avenue from the very handsome Brick Presbyterian Church and just up from the large Louise Nevelson sculpture in the middle of the avenue near the crest of Carnegie Hill.

Erected in 1925, this 15-story building was converted to a cooperative in 1979 and has 57 apartments.

The building was developed by the Bricken Construction Company, whose owners initially occupied the penthouse. The building was designed by Schwartz & Gross, whose other Park Avenue buildings include 470, 525, 885, 888, 910, 911, 930, 941, 970, 983, 1045, 1070 and 1125.

The neighborhood here is one of the most desirable in the city with many fine schools and cultural institutions.

The red-brick building has a doorman, an attractive cornice and quoins and inconsistent fenestration. It has no garage.
