1000 Grand Concourse

Sugarman & Berger
Grand Concourse Historic District, National Register Historic District

When it was completed in 1935, 1000 Grand Concourse was the first apartment building over six stories tall to be erected along the prestigious thoroughfare. The ten-story Art Deco building is faced with beige brick and features a cast stone entrance surround. However, the building’s most noticeable feature is the raised and contrasting brickwork along the spandrels and roofline that add variety to a relatively unadorned façade. The apartment house was designed by Sugarman & Berger, whose work can also be found in Greenwich Village and on the Upper West and Upper East Sides of Manhattan.
