210 East 36 Street is one of those quintessential Murray Hill buildings- a classic and welcoming structure with an authoritative air. The squat red-brick mid rise went co-op in 1985 and continues to be a small neighborhood gem.
Seelig & Finkelstein
Irving Seelig and Harry Finkelstein founded their architecture firm out of Brooklyn in the 1920s and went on to design apartment buildings across New York for half a century known for their mix of comfort and modernity. Their work has entered the National Register and remains a portal into a mid-20th century Cheever-esque way of city life.
