Nestled within the Central Park West historic district, this narrow but very handsome building, with highly decorative neo-gothic design, is one of several white terra-cotta buildings that were developed by Edward West Browning.

The building was designed by Buchman & Fox and was erected as the Earlton Studios in 1915. At 13 stories, it was unusually tall for its time and was also revolutionary in its multi-family housing concept. It contained one- and two-room apartments at a time when large single-family homes and apartments, the latter now coveted as lavishly “pre-war,” were the norm.

The building became a Cooperation in 1985 and currently holds 48 apartments, a laundry room and training ground among other retail spaces. It has overseen many upgrades to the interior including intercom and security system, renovated stairway as well as a new roof.

Located between Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues, It has an excellent and lively central Upper West Side location within one block from central Park as well as the Central Park West subway station and the express subway station on Broadway. It is also close to many restaurants and boutiques on Columbus Avenue and not far from the Lincoln Center District a few blocks to the south.
