38 GRAMERCY PARK EAST
Architect: unknown
1853-54; redesigned, c. 1920

No. 38

Built as one of several buildings along Gramercy Park East that, soon after their completion, became Sanderson's a Family Hotel, this structure has undergone a succession of alterations in design and use. According to New York City Buildings Department records, the building was a private residence in 1885, but by 1891 had again been converted into a hotel; by 1913 this was a boarding house, and by 1926 it contained 35 non-house-keeping apartments (e.g., apartments without kitchens). The present Neo-Tudor facade, with its pseudo-half-timbered upper floors and oriel, its crenelated roofline, and metal casement windows, probably dates from about 1920 when a number of old rowhouses in New York were being redesigned with mock-medieval facades.
