Today's Featured Building: Harperley Hall


Harperley Hall is also known as 1 West 64th Street as the main entrance in the light court faces that way. The United States Postal Service regards this building as 41 Central Park West. No matter how it's referred to this building is a fine example of Arts and Crafts style of architecture.

Harperley Hall viewed from above
It was designed by Henry W. Wilkinson whose ancestral home is reported to be in Northumberland, England, and the design is said to reflect a manor house from the Northumberlnad area. The building is just as impressive today as it was when it was completed in 1911. At first, it was surrounded by a wrought iron fence in front of a moat, and it still has a guardhouse.

It stands only 12 stories and has 85 apartments within its walls, although it has only 76 apartments when it opened. Various combinations were formed by owners throughout the years. Interestingly, the building attempted to become a cooperative in 1941, unsuccessfully. It was then converted to a rental instead. It was reconverted to a co-op in 1983 and remains so today.

It stands across the road from Central Park, which may possibly be the most famous urban park in the world. The neighborhood of Lincoln Square is also home to the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, as 16.3 acre parcel of land housing 29 world class performance venues, and it is just a block from Harperley Hall.[1]
