This 19-story, red-brick apartment building
was erected in 1951 and converted to a cooperative in 1981.
Designed by Horace Ginsbern & Associates,
it is located in the most prestigious part of Park Avenue, close
to some of the most elegant and exclusive residential buildings
in the city.
The 74-unit building has a one-story marble
base and many balconies, which are partially recessed. It has
a canopied entrance with a doorman.
Although the building is not close to a subway
station, there is cross-town bus service on 72nd Street, which
is also a major access to the Central Park Drive. This area is
one of the most desirable in the world with world-famous boutiques
along Madison Avenue and many important art galleries and restaurants
