Today's Featured Building: Rutherford Place
Rutherford Place began life as a maternity hospital, but the hospital was converted in the mid-1980s into a residential building. This prewar building is a classic example of the Beaux Arts architectural style. Its conversion was praised for maintaining many of the building’s historically significant detailing and ornamentation.
Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, residents of Rutherford Place enjoy the prestige of living in a land-marked building in combination with all of the conveniences of modern luxury residences.
Rutherford Place also offers residents the luxury of location, as it is found in the neighborhood of Gramercy Park, an area known for its prewar buildings, its understated elegance, and the proliferation of high end shops and restaurants.
Located on Second Avenue between East 17th and 18th Streets, Rutherford Place finds itself in the neighborhood of Gramercy Park on the east side of Manhattan. It is bordered on the north by 23rd Street, the east by the East River, the south by 14th Street, and Park Avenue South to the west. Gramercy Park is an oasis of tranquil Manhattan living, famed for its namesake park located between East 20th and 21st Streets and Park Avenue South and Third Avenue.
