The Dorilton is a luxury residential housing cooperative in Manhattan, New York City. Construction began in 1900 and was completed by 1902.


The building was designed by Janes & Leo, the New York City-based architectural firm of Elisha Harris Janes and Richard Leopold Leo for real estate developer Hamilton M. Weed. It is located at 171 West 71st Street, at Broadway.

The building is noted for its opulent Beaux-Arts style limestone and brick exterior, featuring monumental sculptures, richly balustraded balconies, and a three-story, copper and slate mansard roof.[2] The exterior masonry, decorative terra-cotta work and chimneys and roof were expertly restored in 1998 by the Walter B. Melvin architectural firm.[3][4]

Architecture historian Andrew Dolkart thinks it may be "the most flamboyant apartment house in New York," with its striking, "French-inspired" sculpted figures and an enormous iron gate "reminiscent of those that guard French palaces."[5]

Architecture historian Francis Morrone regards it as one of the city's great apartment buildings.[6]

The building was designated a New York City landmark in 1974. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1]
