Overview

The very elegant, 15-story, apartment building that has canopied entrances at 6 West 77th Street and 16 West 77th Street was erected in 1928 and designed by Nathan Korn whose other buildings on the Upper West Side include 230 and 327 Central Park West.

The beige-brick buildings, which appear as one, contain a total 102 cooperative apartments.

They are directly west of the New York Historical Society on Central Park West and directly across 77th Street from the American Museum of Natural History.

The buildings have doormen, basement storage, sidewalk landscaping, a two-story rusticated limestone base, several stringcourses, a cornice, and roof decks.

Residents of the building and others on the block have campaigned against any expansion by the New York Historical Society, which had commissioned a fabulous addition several years ago by Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer that would have significantly added to the fabled Central Park West skyline with a setback tower with a pyramid roof while also vastly improving the looks of the existing society’s rather dull building.

The myupperwest.com website noted that "perched above the cradle of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, where its world-beloved balloons come to live each year, this home enables a lifestyle previously thought to be just the stuff of movies."

Many of the building’s apartments on the upper floors facing north have stupendous vistas of the towers of the museum in the foreground, the beacons of the Beresford in the background...
