1130 Park Avenue

Southwest corner at 91st Street

By Carter B. Horsley

This 15-story apartment building was erected in 1927 and converted to a cooperative in 1951. It has 46 apartments.

The structure, which replaced a couple of five-story residential buildings, has a prime Carnegie Hill location just across 91st Street from the handsome Brick Presbyterian Church that was designed by George F. Pelham Jr.

The lower half of the first story of this red-brick building is faced with marble and an attractive bandcourse runs around the third story. The building, which has protruding air-conditioners and consistent fenestration, has a canopied entrance that leads into a step-up lobby. It has no sidewalk landscaping, no health club, no garage and no balconies.

There are many fine private schools in this neighborhood as well as many cultural and religious institutions. This is one of the city's most desirable neighborhoods for families and there are several charming restaurants and boutiques nearby on Madison Avenue.
