This attractive, 16-story,
red-brick building was erected in 1925 and converted to a cooperative
in 1983. It has 82 apartments.
The building has a very handsome
façade with a two-story limestone base and a canopied entrance.
It is across the street from the huge and not very attractive
Schwab House apartment complex. This building has a doorman and
permits protruding air-conditioners. It has consistent fenestration
and no sidewalk landscaping and no garage. It has an exposed rooftop
watertank andit permits protruding air-conditioners.
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 developed nearby by Donald Trump
and Extell Developmentand known as Riverside South a couple of
blocks to the south have added to the neighborhood's retail vitality
but have also impacted its congestion.
