1) Who designed the building at
17 East 89th St.? The Landmarks Designation Report is not consistent. For the building only Ajello is listed. Yet in the section for bios of architects under Ajello (with only this one building as his contribution to Carnegie Hill) at the end it states that the building was designed in conjunction with (or some such word) Deutsch & Schneider. A similar statement appears at the end of the Deutsch & Schneider Bio.
2) Cynthia asks: Do you by any chance know who Nast is? In the Designation Report for 140 E95 it shows that Springsteen (1879-1954) & Goldhammer designed it in1929. Outside the district for 165 East 88th (the Kolping House) we learned that Nast & Springsteen designed it in 1912. But we know nothing more of Nast. Have you any info on him? Also, is it safe to assume that Springsteen is the same person for both buildings.
3) In your email of Aug 20 – item “p. 152 (regarding 112 E. 91, the stable)” you mention “R&G application” what do those initials stand for?
4) In your email of Aug 19 – item “p.35 (re 1148 Fifth)” you mention AABN. What does this acronym stand for?
