The Upper East Side—Manhattan’s Gold Coast—maintains an aura of conservative respectability, and perhaps as a result never attracted as much Art Deco flash as its counterpart on the west side of Central Park. Nevertheless, tucked among the Beaux-Arts town houses and sedate neo-Georgian apartment buildings, the neighborhood has some remarkable examples by some of the best architects, including an apartment house by Raymond Hood (built for the owner of the Daily News); one of Manhattan’s very few Art Deco town houses; the elegant Carlyle Hotel; and apartment houses by Sloan & Robertson, Horace Ginsberg. and George and Edward Blum—the Blums having designed some of the very first Art Deco apartment buildings anywhere in the city.
