What a stately entrance to the Megantic ( reminds me of Titanic!!) apartments in lowest Southern part of what people now call Murray Hill...

Of course, you will note security camera has been added to original design...

This was obviously designed as a "better class" of tenement building back when it was built ( late 1800's. probably) --and after going through who knows how many transformations is today I believe all "luxury" condos ( luxurious certainly as far as the price is concerned...)

Of course, it could still be a rental building with a few older people clinging on to their rent stabilized apartments ( not being able to move to anyplace else in Manhattan now!)
