The Colosseum Apartments

This building, one of the most distinguished in the neighborhood, looks much the same today as when it was built in 1910 by Charles Paterno to a design by the locally famous architects Schwartz & Gross. Some of the apartments shown below have since been subdivided, losing the luxury - unimaginable today - of one apartment per floor. Harlan Fiske Stone, FDR's chief justice, lived here.
