Ivy Court mixes American Colonial with French Beaux Arts features, creating an amalgamation of fin-de-siècle architecture. Two of the three apartment buildings making up Ivy Court, Number 210 and 230 are faced with white limestone and have minimal ornamentation. The facade of Number 230 has “balconies and ironwork worthy of Paris,” according to the AIA Guide to New York City Architecture. The third building, Number 220, is in red brick and terra-cotta, with limestone quoins, evoking McKim, Mead, and White’s 1893 classroom buildings at Columbia University. The Ivy Court was advertised in the New York Times as “all light: 7 rooms furnished or unfurnished, conceded to be the finest apartments on the West Side.”
