This large 16-story red brick building between First and York Avenues was built in 1956 and converted to a Coop in 1983. It has 218 apartments.
This white glove 24-hour doorman building has two small, slightly recessed “light courts” that provide for some bay windows and small planting areas on the sidewalk. The canopied entrance, which has small side lanterns, is faced with white marble that extends to about half of the building’s frontage.
The small and attractive lobby steps down to its elevator bank and has a package room. The building has a small health club, a fabulous roof deck and a parking garage. The area has great neighborhood shopping and restaurants, and cross-town buses running on 79th Street, and also has a southbound entrance to the FDR Drive one block east of York Avenue. The nearest subway station is at 77th Street and Lexington Avenue and Sotheby’s, the auction house, is on York Avenue at 72nd Street.
