Unlike many of the classic co-ops in Jackson Heights, the Greystones 14 buildings face one another on 80th Street. Instead of a enclosed interior garden, the buildings all have front and rear gardens.

The Greystones are particularly notable for their beautiful limestone facades, unusual in the neighborhood. The Greystones are made limestone and gray-brick.
