Description

Designed in 2004 by renowned architect Philip Johnson – whose projects, among others, include Avery Fisher Hall – the Metropolitan at 181 East 90th Street is located in Carnegie Hill.

The 32-story Metropolitan has 94 apartments, with the smallest aound 1,000 square feet. Sized to emulate prewar residences, units feature high ceilings, large entry foyers and spacious rooms. They also have unusual elements such as cherry wood kitchen cabinets and wide plank Merbau cherry wood floors. Master bathrooms have deep infinity edge tubs, which have a tub within another tub to allow the water to overflow, pass through a filter and recirculate. There are 10-foot ceilings, curved walls of oversized double-paned windows and spacious eat-in kitchens with stainless steel appliances. Apartments have full size washers and dryers, California walk-in closets and open views.

The amenities are equally impressive with a full time doorman, lobby attendants, concierge, handyman and a live-in super. Residents also have access to a fitness center, a children’s playroom and private storage rooms. The neighborhood is largely residential, with many restaurants, food markets and retail stores along 86th Street.
