This elegant apartment at PS90 Condominium in fashionable Hamilton Heights seamlessly combines vintage and contemporary style. Built in 1907 by Charles B.J. Snyder, superintendent and chief architect for NYC Schools from 1891 to 1922, the gorgeous Collegiate Gothic former PS 90 public school building was converted in 2010 by Curtis + Ginsberg Architects into 75 luxurious condominium homes, creating a wonderful collage of outstanding period architecture and modern amenities. In 2011, the project won the Lucy Moses Prize, awarded by The New York Landmarks Conservancy to honor excellence in historic preservation.
