815 Park Avenue

Southeast corner at 75th Street

By Carter B. Horsley

This attractive, dark brown brick, 14-story apartment building was erected in 1916 and converted to a cooperative in 1989. It has 46 apartments and was designed by Rouse & Goldstone.

It has a three-story limestone base with some large arched windows, and an attractive cornice and frieze at its top. It has a canopied entrance with a doorman, but no garage and no health club.

This is one of the nicest areas of the Upper East Side with many attractive boutiques and restaurants. This building is a block south of Lenox Hill Hospital and a block east of the Whitney Museum of American Art on Madison Avenue. It is also convenient to a local subway station at 77th Street and Lexington Avenue.
