Top 10 Art Deco Apartment Buildings in New York City

New York holds an abundance of iconic architecture in virtually every style, yet none are as closely associated with the city as Art Deco. The dazzling style exemplifies the bustle and energy of the Roaring Twenties, most notably through landmarks such as the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building; however, the city also offers plenty of beautiful Art Deco apartment buildings, the finest of which are presented in CityRealty’s Top 10 list.

#1 - River House, 435 East 52nd Street

Co-op in Beekman/Sutton Place

The River House elegantly combines Beaux-Arts and Art Deco motifs to produce one of the city’s finest co-ops in terms of architecture, location, and opulence.

#2 - 70 Pine Street

No fee rental in Financial District

When 952-foot-tall 70 Pine Street rose in 1932, the tower yielded only to the Empire State and the Chrysler buildings in terms of both height and Art Deco elegance. The 2016 apartment conversion instantly propelled the slender, setbacked landmark into the top ranks of New York City’s Art Deco-styled apartment buildings.

#3 - The Eldorado, 300 Central Park West

Co-op in Central Park West

The Eldorado’s twin spires grace the romantic skyline of Central Park West near the Reservoir. The ornate yet austere skyscraper exemplifies the gradual transition from classical opulence to avant-garde modernism.

#4 - The Ardsley, 320 Central Park West

Co-op in Central Park West

Versatile Art Deco draws inspiration from a variety of influences, ancient and modern alike. The style was the nation’s first to pay homage to ancient American architecture as well as European prototypes. Meandering geometric patterns decorate the stalwart Ardsley, which rises in stepped sebacks like a Mayan pyramid.

#5 - The Majestic, 115 Central Park West

Co-op in Central Park West

The twin towers of the Majestic at Central Park West rise to boldly-ribbed pinnacles that borrow as much from flying buttresses of European cathedrals as from the chrome-plated grill of a sporty hot-rod.

#6 - The Century, 25 Central Park West

Condo in Central Park West

The twin-towered Century at Central Park West combines horizontal and vertical patterns in a bold modern manner, while its warm beige brick references the Upper West Side’s pre-war context.

#7 - Walker Tower, 212 West 18th Street

Condo in Chelsea

The Walker Tower is a rare building where the modern addition exceeds the design of the already-excellent original. In 2012, CetraRuddy Architects extended architect Ralph Walker’s 1929 telephone switching building to 22 stories, which rise through robust grills, mullions, and setbacks to a four-spire pinnacle in fine Gotham spirit.

#8 - 1 Fifth Avenue

Co-op in Greenwich Village

The setbacked silhouette of One Fifth Avenue is as much an icon of Greenwich Village as is the nearby Washington Square arch. The 27-story co-op rises prominently above the neighborhood, providing sumptuous panoramas in all directions from upper-floor units.

#9 - 55 Central Park West

Co-op in Central Park West

Organ-like, pointed pilasters at the base usher a brick facade that rises in a gentle brown-to-orange gradient to a series of spindly spikes at the pinnacle. The dramatic edifice is featured at the climax of the 1984 paranormal fantasy film "Ghostbusters."

#10 - Master, 310 Riverside Drive

Co-op in Riverside Dr./West End Ave.

The theatrical top of 55 Central Park West had inspired the paranormal-minded cinematic classic, yet the mysterious history behind the skyscraper at Riverside Drive would have arguably been a more fitting prototype. Modern-futurist architects at Helmle, Corbett & Harrison and Sugarman & Berger designed the tiered building at the request of celebrated artist and mystic Nicholas Roerich, who once maintained a museum at the lower floors of the building, which he named after the elusive “Master” whose inner voice he claimed to follow in his spiritual quest.
