Description

This light and open Two-Bedroom, Two-Bath apartment is located in one of the Upper West Side’s premier landmark districts, directly across from the Natural History Museum and the Rose Earth and Space center, home of New York’s famed Hayden Planetarium. A classic Emery Roth design, the building was constructed in 1930 and features one of NYC’s finest lobbies: an Italian Renaissance design that stretches through the entire block between 81st and 82nd Street. The building is adjacent to Central Park, subways and busses, and is one of the loveliest locations on the Upper West Side.

The apartment has a semi-private landing, and faces west and south. The western views are open and include rooftops and the Hudson River Palisades in the distance. The layout of the apartment is gracious, and includes a central Foyer leading to a grand 16’ x 23’ Living Room with a decorative fireplace on the right, and a short hallway to two bedrooms on the left.

There are polished oak floors throughout the apartment (in both strip and herringbone designs), ceilings closer to 10 feet in height than 9, ample closets, a Washer/Dryer, a Dining Alcove with a lovely view, and the services of an extensive staff. Some of the photographs are virtually staged. The apartment is in good estate condition, awaiting the personal touch of its next Owner.

The Building allows 50% Financing, and there is a 2% Flip Tax to be paid by the Purchaser.
