Description of 135 East 79th Street

The 19-story limestone-clad condominium residence at 135 East 79th Street on the Upper East Side is known to be among the city’s best pre-war-style apartment buildings constructed in the post-war era. A pair of 22-foot-tall espaliered pear tree sculptures flank the arched entrance; antique ground floor window grilles were made by the firm that fabricated the gates for Buckingham Palace; the lobby floor is laid in patterned travertine slab stonework, while antique French gilded bronze chandeliers hang beneath a double-height vaulted ceiling. Within are 32 large 2-, 3-, 4- and 5-bedroom apartments, several with terraces, topped by a handful of dazzling penthouses. Amenities include a full-time doorman and concierge, a landscaped private garden courtyard, a fitness center with private training studio, a residents’ lounge with a catering kitchen and a club/game room overlooking the garden. Private wine cellars, bicycle storage and private storage are also available. The building’s location is classic Upper East Side, a couple of blocks from Central Park, Museum Mile and Madison Avenue shopping and restaurants like Cafe Boulud. Cult favorites like Soul Cycle, Candle 79 and H & H Bagels are steps away to sustain everyday life.
