35-38 Mount Morris Park West, The Montana

Following the vogue started by The Dakota for naming luxurious apartment houses after the Western territories, The Montana at 35-38 Mount Morris Park West is the grandest such building to face the park and was designed in 1900 by George Pelham, who also designed Two West 120th Street a year later.

A stern essay in the American Renaissance style, the building has unfortunately been shorn of its cornice, but is otherwise intact.  The monumental entrance is especially handsome.
