In 1939 a five-building, 400-unit apartment complex was completed in the Inwood section of northern Manhattan. The eight story brick buildings featured stunning views, art deco details, rooftop terraces, landscaped gardens, modern amenities and plenty of fresh, clean air.
According to a full on advertising campaign that spanned 1939-1941 the Park Terrace Gardens experience could be best described as “Country Life in the City.”
“Just think of acres of gardens,” the print advertisements proclaimed. “Every room overlooks a garden or Street in Park Terrace Gardens. 62,000 square feet of gardens—actually more garden space than that occupied by the buildings.”
The campaign ended, presumably, when all the units were rented.
The below advertisements for Park Terrace Gardens appeared in the New York Times and the New York Tribune:
