565 West End Avenue is an aristocratic
Art Deco tower befitting the elegance and style of the neighborhood
in which it is located.
The building stands on the
corner of West End Avenue and 87th Street. Typical Art Deco touchs
are the corner windows, and the decorative horizontal banding
enveloping the windows. The brickwork's horizontal banding is
carried out also on the ground floor exterior.
Unlike many Art Deco buildings
in less well-to-do areas, 565 West End Avenue has kept its classic
metal doorway. Notice the interesting assymetrical patterning
of the metalwork in the transom. The building lobby is elegant
The architect was H. I. Feldman.
