Woodrow Wilson Apartments

[doptg id=”119″]

Address: 69-10 108th Street
Neighborhood: Forest Hills
Architect:  Birnbaum, Philip
Year: 1953
Current Status: Extant
Award:  Bronze Plaque for Apartments
Typology:  Apartment Building

The building is one in a series of apartment houses by Birnbaum named for past presidents. Here the white painted ironwork gives this nine-story building a graceful, patrician air. Similar to many other buildings in this part of Forest Hills, the Woodrow Wilson is clad in red Colonial brick and many apartments have large cantilevered balconies. There is also a large two-story parking garage, an amenity that became de rigueur in 1950s apartment living.
