"There is anecdotal evidence that the maisonette [large apartment] once served as a school for the deaf, which may explain its unusual arrangement of back-to-back powder rooms, each with its own anteroom and a marble or tile floor, off a sunken foyer reached through the lobby," according to the New York Times, 3/15/15, at p. RE 2.
The building is discussed by Robert A. M. Stern, Gregory Gilmartin and Thomas Mellins, in their book, “New York 1930, Architecture and Urbanism Between The Two World Wars,” (Rizzoli, 1988), according to http://streeteasy.com/building/120-east-end-avenue-new_york.
