This attractive, 13-story,
gray-brick building was erected in 1918 and converted to a cooperative
in 1971. It has 35 apartments.
The building has a rusticated
base with lanterns flanking its entrance to a step-up lobby. It
is cattycorner to the huge and not very attractive Schwab House
apartment complex. This building has consistent fenestration,
no sidewalk landscaping and no sidewalk landscaping.
This neighborhood, just north
of the very popular Lincoln Center District, is very convenient
to public transportation as an express subway station is nearby
at Broadway and 72nd Street. Excellent shopping and many restaurants
are nearby and Riverside Park is just a block away. The huge new
residential complex being developed nearby by Donald Trump and
known as Riverside South a couple of blocks to the south is expected
to add not only to the neighborhood's retail vitality but also
to impact its congestion.
