1120 Park Avenue

Northwest corner at 90th Street


By Carter B. Horsley

This attractive, neo-Georgian-style apartment building was erected in 1929 and converted to a cooperative in 1961.

The 20-story building, which was designed by George F. Pelham, has 68 apartments.

The building’s red-brick exterior is relatively spartan, but dignified with a terracotta bandcourse of garlands and terracotta trim around the setback parapets.

Located in the heart of the very desirable Carnegie Hill neighborhood, it is convenient to many fine schools, religious and cultural institutions and is close to a good supermarket on Madison Avenue. An express subway station is at 86th Street and Lexington Avenue.

It has a doorman and some terraces and protruding air-conditioners, but no garage, no health club and no balconies.
