Facts

  • The Langham resembles a prototypical Parisian apartment building in design, and illustrates the influence of French urban culture on 19th and early 20th century New York.
  • This building was meant to house the wealthy and apartments were originally limited to four per floor.
  • Apartments are arranged around individual light courts which provide access to light and air, but allow for a more economical use of space.
  • Shared amenities included a sophisticated direct mail delivery system, a central refrigeration plant that eliminated the need for iceboxes, and built-in vacuum cleaning connections to facilitate domestic maintenance.
