In 1954, a stunning building was erected along Palisade Avenue, in Riverdale, in the style of Philip Johnson, by famed architect and builder, Henry Kibel. So impressive was this piece of architecture that Life Magazine featured it in a two page spread, entitled Mid- Century, happening in real time... Among its distinguishing characteristics is an abundance of glass, that allows nature and light to become a part of daily living, giving the feeling of freedom from constraints, within an urban landscape. This incredible building is truly bursting with optimism at every turn.
