Description

The Manchester Apartments is a four-story apartment building constructed from brick.[2] The building is typical of medium-scale middle-class apartment buildings built in Detroit in general and along East Jefferson in particular in the first decade of the 1900s.[2] The details of the exterior, including corner blocks around window groupings, brick quoins, and patterns above the cornice demonstrate the rise of modernism.[2]

In popular culture

The Manchester Apartments were featured in the season one episode of The Sopranos, The Legend of Tennessee Moltisanti[3], where it serves as the apartment building of Christopher Moltisanti and Adriana La Cerva.
