930 Park Avenue

By Carter B. Horsley

This very attractive, Italian Renaissance-palazzo-style apartment building was erected in 1916 and converted to a cooperative in 1946. The building has a three-story limestone base beneath a light-beige brick facade that is surmounted by a large, green cornice.

The 13-story building, which has decorative balconies on the fourth floor, has 24 apartments and was designed by Schwartz & Gross, whose other buildings on the avenue include 470, 525, 885, 888, 910, 911, 941, 970, 983, 1045, 1070, 1095, 1125 and 1165.

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 doorman building has consistent fenestration and no garage.
