New York in New York County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
133 East 80th Street
Designed by Rosario Candela in 1929, 133 East 80th Street embodies the architect’s signature achievements during an unprecedented wave of luxury apartment house construction in New York City leading up to the Great Depression. Empowered by zoning that permitted taller buildings through a series of terraced setbacks, Candela transformed there aeries using stylistic ornamentation that redefined the city’s skyline with fanciful penthouses and water tower enclosures. The build’s design incorporates a blend of French Gothic and Tudor Revival elements that are restrained on the lower stories and romantically picturesque on the upper stories.
