Top 10 Most Prestigious Co-ops

Not surprisingly, all the buildings on this list are pre-war and most are limestone- rather than glass-clad and have rusticated bases.  Fifth Avenue beats out Central Park West, four to three, trailed by two Park Avenue buildings and one facing the East River.  These early buildings have true and large "luxury" layouts and they goggled up the great locations early.

#1 - River House, 435 East 52nd Street

Co-op in Beekman/Sutton Place

Yes, Central Park is prettier than the East River, but when you're serving champagne and caviar you don't want your guests worrying about where to hang their furs and raincoats.
