In the subway boom of apartment building, individuality became an important marketing techniques in distinguishing one building from another.  

The builders of the Audubon Park Apartments capitalized on the Audubon name and its proximity to Audubon Park, which in 1906 still retained its park-like nature.  

Situated directly across Broadway, the Audubon Park Apartments were advertised as adding ..."the Charm of Country to the City Home."
