In 1905 Charles and Joseph of Paterno Brothers, Inc. built four six-story buildings, designed by Schwartz & Gross, in a grid format along Morningside Drive between 115th and 116th Streets. This post will feature two of these: La Touraine at 401 West 115th Street and Park Court next door at 403 West 115th Street.

According to the Apartment Houses of the Metropolis book “The architecture is Parisian, strikingly pleasing in its simplicity and not disfigured by projecting fire escapes.”
