Located on the corner of 37th Street and Park Avenue is a lovely Pre-War Cooperative boutique building that was built in 1940. The building was designed by George Pelham Jr. one of the city’s leading architects of pre-war buildings. It originally was built as a rental building and then converted to a co-op in 1972. The building has a red-brick façade, with a broad limestone bandcourse on the 4th floor. There are roughly 120 apartments and 17 floors, comprised mainly of studios and one bedroom apartments. However, some shareholders have combined apartments and have made larger units. The building features 24Hr. doorman, a live-in super, a bicycle room, private storage lockers for residents, and a common laundry room. In addition, there is a lovely roof top garden with stunning views of the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, Grand Central and Park Avenue. The building is located in the heart of Murray Hill amongst many historical and attractive buildings including the Union Leagues Club, and what now serves as the JP Morgan Library.
