The Chatsworth

 The Chatsworth designed by John E. Scharsmith c. 1904 at 344 West 72nd Street in New York City.  Click HERE to read the 1984 Landmark Commission's designation report on the building.  Click HERE to see the Chatsworth on google street view.

Always loved these big 'wanna be Parisian' Belle Epoque apartment buildings.

Also enjoy the 'then & now' photographs

The entrance canopy looks like it may have been clipped, but I am glad to see that it remains (reinstated?). Those top-floor apartments with the huge studio windows must be spectacular.

The Chatsworth just recently hit the market. They are currently accepting offers but The Real Deal mentioned that they were looking in the area of $150 million. What started out as 66 apartments is currently 130 something.
