878 West End Avenue

Southeast corner at 103rd Street



By Carter B. Horsley

This attractive Italian Renaissance-palazzo-style building was erected in 1910 and converted to a cooperative in 1987. It has 60 apartments.

The white-brick, 15-story building has a two-story limestone base with a canopied, arched-two-story-high entrance, and sidewalk landscaping.

The building, which has a large cornice on the avenue but not on the sidestreet, has sidewalk landscaping. The building permits protruding air-conditioners and has consistent fenestration. It has no garage.

This is a very attractive and quiet stretch of West End Avenue and is convenient to public transportation and one block from Riverside Park. Neighborhood shopping is convenient and steadily improving as high-end retailers continue to advance up Broadway.
