This attractive apartment building was erected
in 1924 and converted to a cooperative in 1957. It contains only
two apartments per floor and has a two-story, rusticated limestone
base with sidewalk landscaping.
The 14-story building was designed by Schwartz
& Gross, whose other buildings on the avenue include 470,
525, 885, 888, 911, 930, 941, 970, 983, 1045, 1070, 1095, 1125
The building’s entrance on the avenue
has attractive bronze doors and the top of the building, which
has protruding air-conditioners, has excellent decoration.
The building is not far from the Metropolitan
Museum of Art and many boutiques and art galleries along Madison.
Cross-town buses run on 79th Street and one of the city’s
best schools, PS 6, is nearby in this very desirable neighborhood.
The building has no garage and no health club
and protruding air-conditioners.
