Northeast corner at 80th Street

925 Park Avenue

By Carter B. Horsley

This impressive, limestone-clad, 14-story apartment building has many duplex units and is at the west end of one of the city’s most impressive sidestreet blocks, which contains several major mansions. This area is one of the most attractive on the Upper East Side.

The building, which was designed by Delano & Aldrich, was erected as a cooperative in 1907 and has only 30 apartments. The beige-brick facade has a large cartouche near the top facing the avenue. The three-story rusticated limestone base of the building has a rounded ledge and there are stoops leading to professional offices in the building along the sidestreet. The building has some arched windows on the second floor.

The building, which has a two-step-up canopied entrance and no sidewalk landscaping and no garage, 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.
