Beautiful building and a nice local blog, Kevin.  When you think about this building being the 73rd tallest that paints quite a picture of the skyline in NYC.

Hi Kevin, great post and good information on the building. I used to go that area as a child as my mother worked at Lord & Taylor back in the day.

I'd like to see the "Elliptical Lobby with ebonized mahogany paneling"  Prices seem reasonable for Manhattan.

Kevin, I used to live just off fifth on East 83rd.  It's fun to watch how the different areas of Manhattan change.

WOW! Many thanks to each of you for your kind comments and your Suggests!

Gail -- I'll work on a nice photo for you and send it to you.

Joy -- I'll look forward to it; Harrisburg is only 200 "New York Minutes" away by car or train! :-)

Patricia -- Thanks for the memory; I had a friend at York & E 81st in the 80's and remember that neighborhood fondly. I also lived in the District in the 90's at two different residences: one at C St NE (behind the Hart Senate Office Building) and also one at 37th St NW -- loved the District!
