Overview

Located in the heart of Midtown, the Museum Tower at 15 West 53rd Street was developed in 1983 as part of a redesign of The Museum of Modern Art.

The 52-story tower includes six floors of museum space and has 240 apartments. Featuring high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows and oversized rooms, the Museum Tower’s apartments are grand, airy and brimming with natural light. Walls of windows frame views of Central Park and the city skyline and many open to the MoMA’s sculpture garden.

The Museum Tower's amenities include hotel-quality doormen, concierge, valets and elevator attendants, a fitness center with a sauna, a steam room and a meditation room, a screening room, a business conference room, a wine storage room, a landscaped roof terrace and housekeeping and laundry services.

Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and the Theater District are all located nearby.
