The Broadmoor, named for the famous luxury hotel in Colorado Springs, Colorado, was designed by Joseph Abel in Gothic Revivial style to look like a resort hotel. It is surrounded by spacious grounds, and, when it opened in 1929, it offered the services of a grand hotel, such as a dining room, beauty parlor and barber shop, pastry shop, newsstand, and a valet and laundry service. Senator Huey Long lived here from 1934-1935. It was also home to locally prominent business families, for example, the Hechingers, the Mazors, and the Zlotnicks. Richard Nixon lived here briefly in 1947 while house hunting. The Broadmoor stands eight stories high, the tallest apartment building in the neighborhood. The building converted to a co-op in 1948 and remains one today.
