The Property is a landmarked residential building located in the Greenwich Village Historic District on the west side of lower Manhattan in New York City.
Bing & Bing chose architect Robert T. Lyons. They had just finished working with him on the Gramercy Park Hotel which had opened just a few years earlier in 1925. The Bing brothers and Lyons also partnered on what was a major technological breakthrough in 1916—creating the world's tallest apartment building at 17 stories on Park Avenue.
The Property is rendered in red and brown brick. It has Art Deco references that include four horizontal, terra cotta decorations using greek key motifs at the fourth and sixteenth floors and circle-in-square motifs at the cornice. Granted an occupancy license on August 7, 1931 the building operated initially as an apartment hotel with a dining room on the ground floor.
