Inscription.  Designed by Harde & Short, this striking building, with its distinctive rounded corner bay, is an impressive reminder of the grand era of New York's early luxury apartment houses. Constructed in 1906-08 of brick and terra cotta, with a profusion of gothic-style detail, the structure has an almost medieval quality that stands out in the neighborhood.
 
Erected 1991 by New York Landmarks Preservation Foundation.
