London Terrace Towers

About the Building:

The following excerpt is taken from American Institute to Architects Guide to New York City by Noval White/Elliot Willensky 1967, pg. 86

London Terrace, W. 23rd to W. 24th Sts., Tenth to Ninth Aves. 1930 Farar & Watmaugh.

"This vast buff brick pile, in protomodern planar style with faintly Gothic verticality, is actually two rows of connected apartment buildings flanking a block-long private garden. All in all, it contains 1670 units, with swimming pool, solarium, and shops and banks on the avenue fronts. The name comes from a row of four-story houses that once stretched along the same 23rd Street frontages, facing the 18th Century Clarke mansion. When the present complex was new, doorman were dressed as London "bobbies," as a play on the name"

London Terrace Towers is composed of the four corner buildings which contain approximately 710 units. The building numbers are 405 West 23rd Street, 465 West 23rd Street, 410 West 24th Street and 470 West 24th Street. Floor plans of all four towers are available by clicking here.
