Building Description

Built in 1924 by Rosario Candella, the building has gracious four, five, six, and seven room apartments (even larger for combined units). The building stretches from 75th to 76th Street with doorman manning both entrances. The block-long basement accommodates laundry, storage bins and a large bike room. With 130 units, residents receive the benefits of size and yet the experience is of a more intimate building because each of the three separate elevator banks has no more than 4 apartments per landing. In this building, neighbors might know each other but probably won’t hear each other. It is famous for distinctive Park Avenue architecture, Candella built with solid construction, windowed kitchens and baths, spacious rooms and few shared walls between apartments. The building recently added a private garden for residents and renovated its lobbies. It is very family friendly (with 16 Handles downstairs!) and pet friendly.
