This full-square-block apartment house with a glorious interior courtyard was built by the Astor Estates, and remains the best of their apartments in the city. It was named for Charles Ward Apthorp, who built a mansion he called Elmwood in the 1770s at what is now Columbus Avenue and West 91st Street. Apthorp was highly regarded for his hospitality, but he was also a smart businessman who imported Spanish gold for the American Army and then sold them the supplies they needed, collecting handsome commissions at both ends. His estate in this area covered 300 acres of orchards and meadows.
