Notable buildings[edit]

  • The 1926 Byzantine Revival facade of Congregation Ohab Zedek between Amsterdam and Columbus Avenues.
  • The 1916 The House of the Redeemer, one of the finest Italian Renaissance revival-styled townhouses in New York, is located at 7 East 95th Street.
  • The two blocks that run between Central park West and Amsterdam Avenues are notable for particularly fine and eclectic town houses. The Gothic Claude A.
