Excerpt from LPC designation report of March 14,1972:

This apartment-hotel in the grand French Beaux Arts style occupies the entire blockfront on the west side of Broadway between 73rd and 74th Streets.  It rises on its conspicuous site to a height of seventeen stories.  Built at the turn of the century, with over three hundred suites, it was at that time one of the largest apartment-hotels in the world.  The Ansonia is a symbol of an era of opulence and elegance and still stands as one of the truly grand buildings of Manhattan’s West Side.
