300 Riverside Drve

By Carter B. Horsley

Built in 1924, this rather stately, 14-story building was converted to a cooperative in 1979. The building has 113 apartments.

The red-brick building, which was designed by George Pelham, has a one-story limestone base and terra-cotta trim with a large cornice and two decorative balconies for facade interest.  The building has a deep. three-step-up sidestreet entrance that leads to a handsome vestibule.

With its excellent views of the Hudson River and Riverside Park, this building is typical of the fine pre-war construction of the better Riverside Drive buildings.

The building has a doorman, but no health club, no sundeck and no garage.
