The Queensboro Corporation was incorporated on August 12, 1909. Although the corporation began by building cooperative apartment buildings, Queensboro was also aware that not every potential resident wanted to buy an apartment. In order to fill the need for rental housing, Queensboro built three distinguished apartment buildings between 1923 and 1925. Cedar Court was one of these, designed by Andrew Thomas and was built in 1925. The building, at 83-09 35th Avenue, covers the end-block site rather than a full side-street location. It does, however, maintain the same garden principles of the larger locations: there is a central courtyard, the building is only one apartment deep with at least two exposures, and Cedar Court has sculpted tile roof, an arched entranceway and has a Spanish feel.[1]
