This handsome, white-brick,
rental apartment building was erected in 1968 and was one of the
pioneer projects in the redevelopment of York Avenue in the area
near Carl Schurz Park to the east.
The building's facade is modulated
with dark spandrels, several columns of balconies and numerous
terraces beneath its decorative, enclosed rooftop watertank.
The 22-story building has 11
apartments on most of its floors and most have fireplaces. It
has a glass-enclosed, rooftop pool and gym, a garage, a 24-hour
doorman, sidewalk landscaping and an attractive lobby with a sunken
seating area. The building, which is known as River's Bend, is
pet-friendly and has central air-conditioning.
Some apartments have fireplaces.
Bus service is convenient although
subways are not nearby.
The quiet neighborhood is popular
with families because of the proximity of Carl Schurz Park and
several excellent private schools.
The building, which has about
179 apartments, is owned by the Solow Building Company.
