Across Park Avenue from the Hunter College
Campus Schools, the very attractive school, designed by Morris
Ketchum Jr. & Associates, that was built on 1969 on part of
the site of the famous Squadron A Armory, part of whose impressive
battlements, designed by John Rochester Thomas in 1895, still
stand on Madison Avenue, this light-red brick building was completed
The 18-story structure, which has 161 apartments,
many with balconies, was converted to a cooperative in 1981.
Near the crest of Carnegie Hill, the highest
point on Park Avenue, this building is near many of the city's
finest schools and churches in what has become one of the city's
most attractive and desirable family communities.
Public transportation in the vicinity is excellent
and the building, which was designed by Robert Bien, is only a
short walk away from Central Park and the Museum Mile stretch
of Fifth Avenue.
