A landmark in the Upper West Side, the Dorilton boasts flamboyant Beaux-Arts style architecture. The residential block was built in 1902, supposedly in competition with the Dakota nearby, but it never quite became as prestigious. Nevertheless, its château look with sculptures, fer forgé balconies, and mansard roof, is architecturally impressive and has earned it landmark status.
