Love Your Landmark #7 - Astor Apartments

Astor Apartments
2141-2157 Broadway at West 75th Street
(on the LW! Wish List)

I would like to think of myself as personified in this landmark loveThe A.I.A. Guide to NYC* described this dignified pre-WWI building as being "bland but handsome," adding that its "copper cornice is both potent and elegant." A match made in preservation heaven!
