The coveted vantage point from this apartment is a front row seat to the festivities the eve of The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, when 81st Street between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue, is a staging area for The Giant Balloons.

One enters the apartment from a semi-private elevator landing into the oversized and impressive entrance gallery/library which bridges the living and dining rooms and sets the stage for this special residence.
