|The Hermitage, 330 E. 43rd Street
Continuing our survey of individual Tudor City buildings, here's the lowdown on The Hermitage, known within the French Company as the Sixth Unit.
- 10 stories, 62 apartments, 3 penthouses. Units range from one to five rooms. All are housekeeping apartments, with larger kitchens than in the tower buildings.
- Facade features a quatrefoil parapet along the roofline and obelisks at the corners, along with floral bands, drip moldings and lions with shields.
- Resisting the co-op conversion that swept Tudor City in the late '80s, the building remains rental-only to this day. Most of its original casement windows were replaced with modern windows in 1985, before the building was landmarked as part of the Tudor City Historic District.
