911 Park Avenue

By Carter B. Horsley

This attractive apartment building is the western anchor of the one of the city’s most impressive sidestreet blocks, which contains several major mansions.

The red- and brown-brick building was erected in 1927 and converted to a cooperative in 1952. It has 44 apartments, which have fireplaces and high ceilings, and a two-story limestone base.

The 14-story building, which has inconsistent fenestration and protruding air-conditioners, was designed by Schwartz & Gross, whose other buildings on the avenue include 470, 525, 885, 888, 910, 930, 941, 970, 983, 1045, 1070, 1095, 1125 and 1165.

The building is not far from the Metropolitan Museum of Art and many boutiques and art galleries along Madison. Cross-town buses run on 79th Street and one of the city’s best schools, PS 6, is nearby in this very desirable neighborhood. A local subway station is at Lexington Avenue and 77th Street.

It has no garage, no health club and no sundeck.
