81 IRVING PLACE
Architect: George Pelham
1929-30

No. 81No. 81

For this 14-story apartment house, architect George Pelham, one of New York's most active apartment-house designers, exploited the requirements of the zoning law to create an exuberant design with dramatic setbacks and a striking rooftop pavilion surrounding the water tower. The building, planned with 107 small apartments, is faced with brick, often laid in intricate patterns to add excitement to the facades. The building is ornamented wth beige terra-cotta detail of a very high quality. Terra-cotta features include columns, balconies, and gargoyles embellished with animal heads, monsters, and other fanciful detail.
