Fakten

  • The 130 West 57th Street Studio Building, along with its almost identical neighbor at 140 West 57th Street, was built in a prime location, on a wide cross-town street, with other artists' studios, the Art Students League, Carnegie Hall, and many other nearby sites devoted to art and music.
  • Built in 1907-08 to provide living and working facilities for artists, the studio building at 130 West 57th Street is a rare surviving example of this unusual building type, and a reminder of the early twentieth century period when West 57th Street was a center of artistic activities.
  • Designed by architects Pollard & Steinam, who had previously created several artists' studio cooperatives on West 67th Street, this building profited from the experience of the developers and builders who had worked on the earlier structures.
  • Designated landmark status on October 19, 1999.
  • The artists' studio building type was developed early in the twentieth century, and was an important step toward the acceptance of apartment living for wealthy New Yorkers.
  • The duplex plan of the building allowed for seven double-height stories facing the street, with twelve stories in the rear, and was popular with artists and non-artists alike for the abundant amount of space it provided.
  • Located on the south side of 57th Street, the tall, projecting bay windows set in geometrically-ornamented cast iron frames bring in the north light so prized by artists, and suggest the unique spatial arrangement in this building.
  • This building has been the residence of a number of well-known artists, and its distinctive windows have appeared in several of their works.
