The 13-story building, which has 17 apartments, is distinguished by a large wrought-iron-and-glass entrance marquee.

It has a two-story limestone base and attractive limestone window reveals and the second and third floors and some wrought-iron balconies. The building has no concierge, or doorman, or garage and no sidewalk landscaping, but it does have consistent fenestration and very few apartments as well as an attractive rooftop watertank enclosure.

It is one block to the east from Riverside Park and one block to the west from neighborhood shopping on Broadway. It is also very convenient to excellent crosstown bus service on 86th Street and not far from a local subway station at 86th Street and Broadway. This area has undergone significant upgrading in the 1980's and 1990's and is now one of the most desirable on the Upper West Side.
