941 Park Avenue

By Carter B. Horsley

With a very boldly designed cornice and rope quoins, this is one of the more interesting looking apartment buildings on the avenue in this area despite its exposed rooftop watertank.

This building was erected in 1927 and converted to a cooperative in 1955.

The 16-story building has only 34 apartments.

It was designed by Schwartz & Gross, whose other buildings on the avenue include 470, 525, 885, 888, 910, 911, 930, 970, 983, 1045, 1070, 1095, 1125 and 1165.

The building, which has a doorman, consistent new fenestration and protruding air-conditioners, is close to the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Fifth Avenue and many boutiques and art galleries along Madison. It has no garage and no health club. Cross-town buses run on 79th Street and one of the city’s best schools, PS 6, is nearby on at Madison Avenue.
