This 14-story apartment building was erected in 1927, replacing nine row houses and was converted to a cooperative in 1949. Designed by J. E. R. Carpenter, who is considered to be the leading designer of luxury apartment buildings of his generation, the building received a gold medal from the New York City Chapter of the American Institute of Architects as the city's best new residential building. The 42 apartments???large duplexes and penthouse triplexes???in this prewar residence are spacious and elegant. The building's prime Park Avenue location makes it a neighbor to some of the avenue's most glamorous residences as well as boutiques and department stores along Madison Avenue, art galleries and restaurants, museums and the Lenox Hill Hospital. Amenities include a full-time doorman and laundry facilities.
