By Carter B. Horsley

This pleasant, red-brick apartment building in the heart of the desirable Carnegie Hill neighborhood was erected in 1930 and converted to a cooperative in 1951. The 18-story edifice has 73 apartments.

It was designed by Schwartz & Gross, the architectural firm whose other Park Avenue buildings include 470, 525, 885, 888, 910, 911, 930, 941, 970, 983, 1045, 1070, 1105, 1125 and 1165.

The building has a two-story limestone base and a very handsome frieze and an ornamental balcony below the fifth floor. It has a canopied entrance, sidewalk landscaping and attractive terraces on the top four floors. It has inconsistent fenestration and protruding air-conditioners.

There are many fine private schools in this neighborhood as well as many cultural and religious institutions. The building is convenient to public transportation and excellent retail.
