On the corner of Broadway and 90th Street you'll find one of the more impressive cornices in New York. The building, known as the Cornwall, was designed in 1909 by the architecture firm of Neville & Bagge, one of the most prolific firms of that period; the firm focused primarily on the then booming Upper West Side of Manhattan. Working with Schwartz and Gross, who created the Ghostbusters building, and the firm of George F. Pelham, they designed over half the apartments in Morningside.
