Built in 1937 to designs by the Cohn Brothers, the six-story-and-basement Madison Apartments is among the later apartment buildings erected in the historic district. Typical of that phase of development, the building occupies an end-block site on 35th Avenue and is planned with a large, recessed entrance court at the front (oriented toward 88th Street) and a shallow recess on the avenue in which there is a full height three-sided bay. The building shares its 35th Avenue frontage with the Jacksonian Apartments to the west, also designed by the firm of Cohn Brothers and built in the previous year. Neo-Georgian in style, the building is faced in brick with white trim and is similar to other examples of the Cohn firm’s work within the historic district. Elements which are typical of the style include the door surround with fluted pilasters and a broken scrolled pediment and the flanking windows with multi-pane arched sash; brickwork imitating quoins and brick band courses; relieving arches with stone false fanlights; stone keystones; monumental temple front motifs applied at the upper stories, culminating at the roofline in triangular pediments with oculi; and parapet balustrades.
