This handsome, 14-story building, which was
designed by Herbert Lucas, was erected as a cooperative in 1909.
It has a two-story, rusticated limestone base
and 33 apartments. The facades are boldly composed with large
windows and curved wrought-iron balconies, flared window-top decorative
elements and some diamond-shaped decorative elements on some spandrels.
The building, which has inconsistent fenestration,
no health club, no garage and protruding air-conditioners, has
a choice location convenient to midtown, fashionable restaurants
and boutiques, clubs and religious institutions and very attractive
sidestreets. There is a fair bit of traffic in this neighborhood,
but it is also close to public transportation.
