91 Central Park West

By Carter B. Horsley

This handsome 15-story apartment building was erected in 1921. It is a cooperative and has 94 apartments.  It was designed by Schwartz & Gross.

The beige-brick building has a two-story, rusticated limestone base and a very attractive roofline punctuated by open-pediment window surrounds and topped by an elaborate two-story tower. It has a doorman, a nice lobby, rope quoins, and sidewalk landscaping and permits protruding air-conditioners. It has no health club and no garage.

In addition to its great views of Central Park, the building is close to the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, and many restaurants and stores. It is very convenient to excellent bus service. Subway stations are a few blocks away.
