Old Brochures from Lenox Road Buildings

Want to see records of your building in all its early splendor? How, for instance, every single apartment has a refrigerator the way 130 Lenox Road did? Then search the records of Columbia University Library's Real Estate Brochure Collection.

This link should take you to a list of all the brochures available for buildings on Lenox Road.

Land use geeks take note: one feature of these buildings that comes up in some of these brochures is how far the building sits back from the stret. More evidence that setbacks have to be taken into account in any future rezoning of Community Board 17!

Hat tip to the invaluable Hawthorne Street blog.
