History[edit]

It features a limestone facade on the two lowest floors and a brick exterior for the upper 13 floors. It is a 15 story building featuring just 15 units each composed of a full floor. In recent years it has become known for its conservative and often exclusionary co-op board and is known to avoid famous or notorious residents.
