Top 10 Most Prestigious East Side Condos

Most of the East Side's major mixed-use buildings have condominium apartments as do most of the residential towers on Third Avenue and several of the conversions on Park Avenue.

#1 - Trump Tower, 721 Fifth Avenue

The "signature" project of developer Donald J. Trump, this 58-story, mixed-use tower is triumphant because of its architectural flair, location, views and pink marble waterfall.

#6 - 500 Park Tower, 500 Park Avenue

The asymmetrical massing of this 40-story, mid-block, mixed-use tower designed in 1984 by James Stewart Polshek is one of the city's finest post-war designs that very nicely compliments the short office building on the avenue that is a modern landmark by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.

Directly across from Temple Emanu-El, the city's most socially prestigious synagogue, this building was converted in 1999 to condominiums from an 11-story office buidling of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations and it still has "Love Thy Neighbor As Thyself" inscribed on its limestone facade.

#9 - The Chatham, 181 East 65th Street

This impressive, 34-story, red-brick tower was designed by Robert A. M. Stern and in 2000 replaced the very popular and elegant Sign of the Dove Restaurant.
