The Manchester Apartments is an apartment building located at 2016 East Jefferson Avenue in Detroit, Michigan. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.[1]


The Manchester Apartments is a four-story apartment building constructed from brick.[2] The building is typical of medium-scale middle-class apartment buildings built in Detroit in general and along East Jefferson in particular in the first decade of the 20th century.[2] The details of the exterior, including corner blocks around window groupings, brick quoins, and patterns above the cornice, demonstrate the rise of modernism.[2]

In popular culture[edit]

The Manchester Apartments were featured in the season one episode of The Sopranos, The Legend of Tennessee Moltisanti,[3] where it serves as the apartment building of Christopher Moltisanti and Adriana La Cerva.
