This red-brick apartment building was erected
in 1924 and converted to a cooperative in 1961. It has an attractive,
canopied entrance with two-story-high limestone pilasters and
a frieze and the building also has a nice terracotta frieze around
its third floor and at the top of the building.
The 17-story, doorman building, which has a
nice paneled lobby in dark wood, has only two apartments per floor.
It was designed by Sugarman, Hess & Berger.
The building, which has no garage, no sidewalk
landscaping and no health club, 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.
