Designed by William Hohauser and built in 1947-48, the six-story-and-basement Monroe House is one of several apartment buildings constructed in the post-World War II era of development in Jackson Heights. Continuing the trend of the pre-War years, it is a large building on a mid-block site and planned wim two lightcourts which break up its long street front into three sections.

The brick facades of the Monroe House boast a modest application of Georgian-inspired ornamental details, limited to stone stringcourses at the base and top, an intermediate decorative brick band course, and small classically- inspired stone plaques at the parapet. The entrance, located in the wide central section, is cut into a broad cast-stone facing.
