This distinguished, brown-brick, 14-story building
was erected in 1927 and converted to a cooperative in 1956.
It has 48 apartments.
It was designed by Schwartz & Gross, whose
other buildings on the avenue include 470, 525, 888, 910, 911,
930, 941, 970, 983, 1045, 1070, 1095, 1125 and 1165.
The building, which has a doorman but no sidewalk
landscaping, is a block north of Lenox Hill Hospital.
It has a two-story limestone base, a handsome
third-story bandcourse and third story window reveals, limestone
quoins, multipaned windows and protruding air-conditioners. It
is also close to many boutiques and art galleries along Madison
Avenue as well as many restaurants and cultural institutions in
the area. A local subway station on Lexington Avenue at 77th Street.
Cross-town buses run on 79th Street.
The sidestreet here is very pleasant.
