9. The Georgia
The Georgia, completed in 1909, is located immediately north of The Washington Heights. Both buildings were designed by the firm of Neville & Bagge, prolific architects who designed many apartment houses throughout Manhattan.
The Georgia and The Washington Heights form an interesting contrast considering that they come from the same firm. The Washington Heights has a facade of subdued earth tones while The Georgia features striking red brick and extensive terra cotta with ornamentation. The buildings use very different types of architectural details; for example larger elements framing windows on The Washington Heights and smaller ones on The Georgia.
