Theodore Roosevelt was president when 152 East 35 street made its way onto the Murray Hill map. Today its detailed facade hints at a style that dates back to the turn of the century and its little window seats suggest a sense of timeless coziness.
Hyman Isaac Feldman
Hyman Isaac Feldman’s career spanned most of the 20th century and resulted in 2,500 homes in the New York area. At the time of his death in 1981, he left behind no paper trail of his life’s work. The Polish-born Yale graduate was an advocate for approaching building aesthetics with utilitarian engineering. “The architect of the future,” he said, “Will cease to think in terms of design alone.”
