This 21-story apartment building was one of the first to be erected on Fifth Avenue after World War II.
Across the park from the boat pond in Central Park, the building has a wonderful, highly desirable location and great views from many apartments.
The 92-unit building, which was designed by S. L. Bien, was converted to a condominium in 1983.
The building, which has a white-brick facade over a two-stone limestone base, has an elegant entrance, a sunken lobby, a doorman and elevator persons. The building's lobby is very attractive with a marble floor and handsomely incised bronze elevator doors.
There are mail chutes on each floor.
Over the years, many of the corner balconies on the avenue have been enclosed. The balconies have attractively designed metal railings and the building has a garage.
