Built in 1939 to designs by Joshua Tabatchnik, the six-story-and-basement Arlington Hall is among die later apartment buildings erected in the historic district. Typical of that phase of development, the building occupies a site on 35th Avenue and is planned with a shallow recess at the avenue façade containing the entrance and a deep lightcourt at the side facing 79th Street.

Designed in the neo-Georgian style, the brick building boasts double-height temple front motifs at the upper stories, culminating in pediments with blind oculi at die roofline; brick laid to suggest quoins; brick dentil courses; broken pediments at first-story windows; and a window above the entrance with a Palladian motif. The original entrance has been replaced. Balconies have been removed from sixth-story windows (the brackets remain).
