Top 10 Most Prestigious Co-ops, West Side

Although the Upper West Side is famed for the great twin-tower, pre-war apartment buildings along Central Park West, it has a fabulous inventory of great, mid-rise, non-skyscraping residential buildings.  All but one of its top 10 most prestigious New York City co-op apartment buildings front on Central Park and the exception, Hotel des Artistes, the legendary building with huge studio apartments and a great restaurant, is just a few feet away.  Not all the buildings, of course, are as formidable as the Dakota.
