Although 775 Riverside Drive presents a relatively anonymous face to Riverside Drive, its main entrance, recessed in a shallow courtyard two steps above the street adds a touch of elegance.  A one-story entrance reaches forward from a full-height, six-story windowed column, which in turn pushes forward from the central portion of the building.  Crowning this column is a narrow crenellattion that echoes the roofline of 765 Riverside Drive, around the corner (insert above left).
