Schomburg Plaza

Arthur A. Schomburg Plaza is an early 1970s housing development opposite the northeast corner of Central Park. Spanning a full block from 110th Street to 111th Street, east of Fifth Avenue, it was developed by the New York State Urban Development Corporation to provide approximately 600 units of middle-income housing, as well as community and commercial spaces. The site consists of three primary residential structures: two 35 story octagonal towers, on the corner of Central Park, and a lower slab building along Madison Avenue separated by a raised plaza above a parking garage.
