Ukrainian Institute

This beautiful building houses the Ukrainian Institute of America, an organization that promotes the art and culture of that country. Located on Fifth Avenue at 86th Street, the Ukrainian Institute is diagonally across from the Metropolitan Museum of Art and its architecture was inspired by a Loire Valley chateau. You can take a virtual tour of the inside of the building on their website. Can you imagine when this was a single family home!

"For about 20 years, it was occupied by the owner and his butler and footman, until the Institute purchased it in the late 1950's." Looks deceive though, it is wider than it is deep. Still, a nice "little" house!

Nice building, and as Jay says, not bad for a town house. You found some great buildings for us Lori. Cheers.
