Alwyn Court, located at the corner of 58th and 7th, is one of the most ornately designed buildings in the entire city. Built between 1907-1909 in the French Renaissance style, the entire façade is adorned with terra cotta ornamentation in the Francis I style. The building was built during a transitional period when wealthy New Yorkers were moving from traditional mansions, to apartment living. While the interior of the building has been heavily renovated since its original construction, the exterior remains largely untouched. The 12 story building now operates as a co-op with 75 units. The building was designated a NYC landmark in 1966 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.
Don't you think this @lampsplus Edison bulb lamp adds so much to this whole space? So glad I waited for the perfect lamp to come along instead of impulse buying something when we moved in. Things are slowly (slooooooowly) coming along in the apartment, though we have yet to start the actual renovation (🙄). But it's kind of nice to spread out the satisfaction by just finding one piece at a time! Loved working with the @lampsplus family for this. 💡🌿✨ #mylampsplus#mochicatmonday#shelfie
