New York City’s Landmarks Preservation Commission’s designation report calls Thom and Wilson ‘the most prolific architectural firm represented in the Upper West Side/Central Park West Historic District.’ Their work is described as ‘highly inventive in design and generally executed in the neo-Grec and Renaissance Revival styles incorporating elements from a number of historic sources.’ Their most well-known commission is the landmark Harlem Courthouse on East 121st Street.

This building is the easternmost of a row of five designed by Thom and Wilson in 1890-91. It is vacant, neglected, and tagged with graffiti.
Recently, the owner was cited for Failure to Maintain.
