With its unusual profile dictated by the 1929 Multiple Dwelling Act, this
twin-towered luxury apartment building is one of four similar structures
built on Central Park West during the 1930s.
A 17-story main structure occupies a full city block while the
towers add another ten stories of apartments above.|
The building is decorated with classical details. Its limestone base is rusticated, cartouches appear above the entrance, and choragic temples cap each of its towers. Generously-scaled and well arranged apartments speak to the affluence of the residents.
