400 West 57th Street Awaits Future Renovations and Revival in Hell’s Kitchen

400 West 57th Street is an old architectural gem that stands at the western corner of West 57th Street and Ninth Avenue in the Manhattan neighborhood of Hell’s Kitchen. The eight-story edifice, although worn out and in need of restoration, features a beautiful fenestration of red and white brick masonry, gently bulging bay windows, arched casements, a handsome cornice with one pediment on the northern roofline, and a number of detailed running bonds showing the intricate hand laid craftsmanship. This was formally called The Windermere but has been left to deteriorate since the end of the 20th century.
