The Cliff Dwelling, on Sunday afternoon. We came across this apartment building at 243 Riverside Drive (off 96th Street) this weekend. It's decorated with buffalo-skull and Mayan-head engravings near street level. The architect was Herman Lee Meader and it was completed in 1914. Other sites refer to it as the "Cliff Dwellers' Apartments." Either way, it certainly does evoke a cliff, and must have great views of the Hudson.
