Built when post-World War II Americana met the rise of New York counterculture, The Lexington has made balance its mission. With its old-school brick facade and grey-stone modernist entrance, a quiet patio and a prime location, all the extremes of city life come together in an architectural balance.
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.”
