The White House: 262 Central Park West at 86th Street
Circa 1928 // ARCHITECT: Sugarman & Berger // BUILDER: S.S. Roth & Brothers
Sugarman & Berger are lesser-known architects who were working alongside Candela, Carpenter, and Roth during the 1920’s boom. Very talented, many of their better buildings command top dollar. Their two buildings on Central park West (239 & 262) contribute significantly to the character of that thoroughfare. The White House, as it’s name implies is an all white stone and brick building 14 stories high, and a bit more austere than it’s earlier counterpart at 239 CPW. Other than the very subtle rustication of the base, and corner quoins, there is no applied ornament whatsoever, and just five Juliette balconies.
The typical floor consists of six apartments arranged around three elevator banks, and range in size from six to nine rooms. Every apartment is exceptionally laid out around a central foyer, with oversized rooms. Each apartment’s en-suite Master Bathroom is equipped with a stall shower.
