The old Navarro Flats or the Central Park Apartment Buildings were a complex of eight apartment buildings located in Central Park South, corner of 7th Avenue. Construction began about 1883 by Spanish entrepreneur Jose Francisco de Navarro (1823-1909). The buildings were fireproof with iron beams, brick arches, partitions of cement and brick roof, while the stairs were of iron and stone. The eight buildings were demolished in 1926.
