This quite handsome, 15-story building was erected in 1926 and converted to a cooperative in 1984. With its attractive terra-cotta trim and corner, this red-brick building is typical of the high quality of design and construction of the 1920’s when many similar buildings were erected on Park Avenue and West End Avenue. They, of course, do not have the Bolivar’s greatest asset, wonderful views of Central Park. Just a block north of the great Beresford apartment building, the Bolivar is only a few blocks north and south of subway stations and cross-town buses on a fairly quiet stretch of Central Park West. Most of the 104 apartments are relatively small, which can be attractive for people desirous of a Central Park West location but not in need of a large apartment.
