This very, attractive, beige-brick,
14-story building is a cooperative with 50 apartments.
The Art Deco-style, pre-war
building has a prime Carnegie Hill neighborhood location that
is close to several private schools and important cultural institutions
and has convenient local shopping and restaurants. It is diagonally
across Madison Avenue from the very tall luxury apartment tower
at 45 East 89th Street.
The building's top has surprising
splashes of color, that are quite welcome and its top is asymmetrically
terraced. The building has nice architectural detailing, a two-step-up,
canopied entrance, a doorman, consistent fenestration, nice retail,
sidewalk landscaping and protruding air-conditioners. It has no
garage, no balconies and no health club.
There is good cross-town
bus service on 86th Street and a subway station at 86th Street
and Lexington Avenue. Central Park is a block-and-a-half away.
