This building was erected in 1955 orginally with a white-brick fa??ade. In 1998 the entire fa??ade was replaced to a reddish brown and the building has more intricate masonry work. The 158-unit building was converted to a cooperative in 1979 and has a very modern and attractive lobby and canopy entrance on 85th Street. This cooperative is convenient to many museums and the glamour of Madison Avenue. Adjacent to the Carnegie Hill district, which is one of the most desirable in the city because of its many fine schools and churches and family-oriented boutiques, this building has two supermarkets within two blocks and has very convenient neighborhood shopping.
